GOT STAND QUESTIONS?

Question and Response Sunday this weekend!

We've been talking a lot about what it means to STAND for several weeks now. We've heard from several of you already on how the series is challenging you to build your house. Questions have even been coming in on response cards!

Do you have any questions? On Sunday, April 3, Pastor Steve is planning on answering as many of those questions as he can. Submit your question(s), he's waiting to hearing from you!
