Title: Worshiping God
Date: August 25, 2019

Synopsis: Pastor Nick approaches our third core value: Worshiping God, by engaging our identity in Christ. More often than not, we pay attention to what the world tells us that we are not. Instead we should be paying attention to who God tells us we are: beloved children of God.
