Building Balance in My Life Mark Evans, Senior Pastor
September 19 - 20 Thank You for Loving Me Blessed Assurance Forever Reign
Building a life of balance seems to be an impossible goal for many. But it really is attainable. Today we are going to learn some principles that will work to help us maintain a proper perspective to live with daily. These are keys that will help us think through the process of how to keep our life in order. I would like to welcome all our first time guests and ask you to stop by one of our Information Pavilions located in the Town Square. There you will receive a gift we have for you. Blessings!
