A Solid Foundation
Join us for Sunday morning worship at 10 am. You can participate in-person, on Facebook, or on YouTube. However you participate, we pray that you are encouraged through your participation in this service.
We know when foundations give way and fundamentals are ignored, a collapse is not far off. Paul in his first letter to the newly established Corinthian Church shows this when speaking of a human body. Like our bodies need care and strengthening, the church too needs to be built up. Division and separation are cracks in the foundation. Paul wants this church to be strong, built on a solid foundation. That foundation is found only in Christ, and God’s Grace through Him. Today’s Scripture reading is 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a. There is no outline for today’s sermon.

If you already shop at Amazon, it is easy to support our ministry. Instead of going to amazon.com to shop, just add “smile.” before amazon.com. So the link will be smile.amazon.com. Any time you make a purchase at this link 0.5% of your purchase will go to the charity of your choice. It may not be much, but it adds up over time and as more of us make use of this service. Please keep in mind that you need to use the smile link every time you make a purchase. If you go back to using the regular Amazon link or use the Amazon app, we will not get a donation with those purchases.
