It’s going to be a great Sunday at Alderbrook Church.
We have a guest worship leader, Misha Manuel, who is Vijay Manuel’s son (MEI Head Of Schoolc) coming to lead the music. Plus it’s Mission’s Sunday and we will be having Brett Smith give us an update of what’s been happening with the ministry/outreach of the Cyrus Centre.
We are also starting a brand new sermon series titled, WHO ARE YOU? A lot of people really struggle with who they are and who they were made to be. In fact, many are confused about who God created them to be and what he wants them to do. Over the next few weeks, we will be looking at insights from God’s Word about our inner being–our soul…and find out who we really are!
