Some hear God’s Word and respond with a committed faith. But many others hear God’s Word and respond with a superficial faith or have none at all. Why does this happen? This Sunday we begin a new series titled, Illustrations of the Kingdom, with our message titled, “How’s the Soil of Your Heart?” based on Matthew 13:1-23.
The altar flowers celebrate the Steinke Family Birthday Blessings given by Ron and Peggy Steinke.
