TODAY AT WEST LEONARD CHURCH

This morning Pastor Matthew continues a sermon series on the book of Philippians, Reasons for Rejoicing. Today’s message is “Godly Living to Prove the Gospel,” Philippians 1:27 – 2:18. In this series, we are looking at the many gospel truths that the letter to the Philippians shows to us, so that whether we are in a time of great adversity or a time of relative peace and prosperity, we may always have a capacity for joy.

Tonight’s message is from Ezra 3:8-13, “A Choice to Celebrate the New.”

Offerings can be placed in the plates as you leave the sanctuary. Offerings today not designated for another cause will be marked for World Renew (morning) and the General Fund (evening).

Thank you to those helping today:

Prayer Team: Joe & Mary Polonowski.

Sound Technician: David Vander Velde.
