Welcome to Community Church! Today we continue our series on Jonah: Proclaim as Pastor Ezra helps us look at Jonah 4, focusing on God’s broken heart for the lost people in Nineveh. May the Holy Spirit help us to have God’s broken heart for the lost and a desire to go and proclaim the good news of salvation. We welcome and give thanks for the Cascade Fellowship Praise Team as they lead us in worship. May God bless our time of worship together!
Tonight: Pastor Ezra will be leading a study at this evening’s service of Going Deeper! Plan to come and go deeper into God’s Word and its relevance in our lives today!
