The series will conclude with a special message to the SRC congregation. Our theme verses this year are: “‘And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” – (Mark 12:30-31) Continue reading “We’re Going “All In” (New Sermon Series)”
