TODAY’S MESSAGE

Love |  Proverbs 4:23   | Pastor Samuel Kwan

Welcome!

Thank you for worshipping with us! Though our church buildings may be closed during this time, your whole family can join us from your home. Our hope for you today is that you come as you are and leave as God meant you to be:  to encounter our living God and be transformed in heart, mind, soul and strength.  We hope that you will be encouraged to join us in our mission: “To pursue the heart of God by making disciples locally and globally to reach all people for Jesus Christ.”
