Sunday Morning 8/22/10

We had a great service with some folks visiting who are helping bring in the harvest around here.  It was a great time of worship and fellowship and sharing in the goodness of God.  The sermon this week is from Acts 15 and sees the “final solution” to the Gentile inclusion issue reached.  Press play below to listen and follow along with the notes if you would like as well.  Please feel free to leave comments if you have questions or prayer needs or anything of that nature as well.  May God richly bless you through His Word.
