Unity In Community: Unity In the Church

May 9, 2021  
Listen in as Kayleigh Johnson shares a prayer from Romans 15 and then briefly talks about unity within the church. In the church, we are always unified through Christ. The world doesn't have Christ to unify them. We need to hold tight to our identity in Christ, but hold very loosely to to things that are not Gospel-centric. We then broke into table discussions to go over some questions. Today's Music: The Love Of the Father, Man Of Sorrows, Glory and Wonder, and Be Thou My Vision.
