OUR READINGS - Ephesians 2:1-10, John 3:16-21
SUNDAY'S MESSAGE - "Framing Your Worldview: Why Is The World So Messed Up?" You don't have to be a rocket scientist to realize our world is messed up in all kinds of ways. Why is this and what can we do about it? It's a mess because the whole world, including all of humanity is broken and fallen - while it won't all be made perfect again until Jesus comes again, until then we firmly fix our eyes on Jesus! He longs to forgive, heal and begin the restoration of the broken parts of our lives - put your trust in Him!
