Pastor Post: December 6, 2013

Dear Church Family,

Please join us this Sunday December 8 for our first service at 925 Blairs Ferry Road (A.K.A. “The Warehouse for Worship”).

Our commemorative worship service will be at 10AM. We are planning a commemorative painting of sorts, so we’re giving a bit of air warning that we might have everyone’s hands get a bit dirty on Sunday. (nothing too serious, just giving you a heads up)

Our Flint Sunday School will be at 9AM.

We look forwarding to worshiping with you at The Warehouse this Sunday December 8.

Merry Christmas,

Pastor Matt
