From this Past Sunday

The God of Preparation

Sunday, May 19, 2019

Our Scripture focus was on 1 Chronicles 22:11-19.

Our takeaways were to:

  • Read Week 21 of Coast to Coast readings.
  • CONNECT with the preparations God has made for me.
  • DISCOVER how God has prepared me for His Glory.
  • SERVE so that the Love God has prepared in me is experienced by others.
  • Pray that I allow God to prepare me for Him.
