Sunday Morning Sermon from 4/10/11

We had a great time in the Lord this past Sunday.  The weather was much nicer so a lot more folks were able to come together for fellowship and worship.  It blesses my heart to be part of a congregation that loves the Lord and loves each other.  My prayer is that each of you have a place where you can know and be known by brothers and sisters in the Lord.  If you don’t, I encourage you to seek a place where you can be a part of the local body of Christ.

Today’s message is about forgiveness.  Sermon notes are below the play bar for the sermon.  I pray that God will richly bless you through His Word.
