“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.” (Psalm 23:1-3a) These are some of the most familiar and most comforting thoughts in all of Scripture. If you are like me, these words have brought comfort to you at times of sickness, anguish, and death. It is one of the most comforting truths of all. He is my Shepherd. Join us this Sunday at 9:30am as Pastor David shares a message titled “The Good Shepherd” from John 10:1-21.

CONNECTION HOUR
Children, youth, and adult Sunday school classes continue this Sunday at 11am. A list of classes and a church map are available at the Welcome Center.
