Spring Break has finally arrived!! I’m sure that the kids and teenagers are loving this extended break!! As the weather gets warmer and the evenings get longer it’s easy to see that Spring has arrived.
Would you continue to remember to pray for the country of Ukraine this week that God will bring protection and peace.
This Sunday Mark Lewis will be coming to lead worship at Alderbrook. It is also Missions Sunday and we will be hearing from Kris Baker as he is getting ready for his first overseas trip in over two years.
We are also finishing our 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. We will be looking at insights from God’s Word about our inner being–our soul…and find out who we really are.
