(In The Life Of The Church) 


If you are on social media these days, then you've seen the Top 10 List game going around.  The game is this: post a picture a day of your Top 10 favorite (music, movies, etc...) without comment or explanation.  I thought we would join in on the fun, and below you will find: Top 10 "Cheesy Christian" things I knew by heart as a pastor's kid.  This is in no particular order. - Toph




Special Guest Preacher Tim Lee

Please be in prayer for and welcome our special guest preacher Tim Lee.  Tim and his wife Adrienne and son Titus have been worshiping with us for the past three years.  Tim recently graduated from Truett Seminary with his Master of Divinity.  The Lees will be moving back to Malaysia in the fall and so I wanted to give Tim the opportunity to give us a word.
