Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

Sunday at 9:30 AM-Gathering Online for Worship:
This Sunday, we continue our series on Sacred Rhythms and look at the rhythm of SABBATH.  When God directs his people about the Sabbath, he reminds them of both creation and redemption – “In six days God created” and “you were slaves in Egypt”.    We will discover how practicing and keeping the Sabbath ensures that no matter what you are never more than six days away from a holy perspective.
