Weekly Update

 Sunday, July 23, 2017

Chapel Family,

I hope and pray that you and your family are enjoying the summer season and all of the outdoor fun it brings.  I am so thankful to live in such a beautiful and historic place.  Lots of people travel many miles to visit our area of the country and we get to live here.

Please join us this weekend as we discuss how we can build each other up in the faith, rather than being a stumbling block.

Take care, enjoy the summer, and know that I am praying for you.
