Did you catch the main point from church last week?? “I pray that my relationship with God gets even better in 2022.”
I’m sure that a lot of people are a little hesitant and worried as we start 2022. With the Omicron variant spreading it’s quite easy to be unnerved, hesitant and even scared of what may happen this new year.
However, have you ever considered what could happen if we focused our lives completely on God and His daily presence in our lives?
Could you stop and imagine what God could do in you and through you over this next year?? If God is our Saviour and our Lord…and we know that He has everything under control…what could potentially take place in your personal life or family life for His purpose and glory??
We are excited to have Vijay Manuel, Head of Schools for MEI leading our music/worship this Sunday. Vijay is an exceptional leader in our community and has a heart for leading people into the presence of God through music.
We also will continue our sermon series titled”Best Year Yet.”
