This past week Carey preached from Philippians 2 on the majesty of Christ and the wonder of the incarnation. May we reflect this week on the stunning humility and sacrifice of Christ on our behalf and respond in worship and by following His example. If you would like to listen to the sermon you can do so here.


This coming week Pastor Bryan Neal from Countryside will be preaching on Hebrews 1:1-3. Take some time to pray and prepare your heart to receive God's truth and pray for Bryan as he prepares to minister to us.
