Belonging—Part 2

May 15, 2022 | Jamie Cupschalk
1 Thessalonians 1:2–10
We were made to belong, and God has given us a beautiful gift in the Church as a community of people who belong to Him.  As part of this sermon series, we will be meeting in small groups to discover together, what it means to belong. If you are not currently in a small group, please consider signing up here.
Yes, I'm interested in a small group!
