This week we’ll be starting a new series, “DNA: A Series on Who We Are” that focuses on our purpose: We exist to display the greatness of Jesus, through proclaiming the gospel of God’s kingdom, pursuing Christ in community, and participating in God’s mission.
We want to encourage you to take a moment this week as you prepare for our time together on Sunday by reading and praying through the passages.

How can I adore God from this passage?

2.All Praise To Him
3.Jesus You Are Worthy
4.Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)
5.All I Have Is Christ
6.Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
Here are some resources that our elders recommend checking out this week. Please feel free to use them as discipleship opportunities to discuss with one another.
