Church this Sunday, July 24

God is Faithful: This Sunday we return to our sermon series in the book of Joshua and we see how God’s people experience both defeat and victory. But what is the cause of these varying outcomes? And what relevance does this story have for the church and for the lives of believers today? As we tackle these questions we will be pointed to God’s unfailing grace and his faithfulness to all of his promises.
