This Sunday @First Baptist
Sunday, August 19

Sunday mornings this month we’re studying God’s Word to learn how to find contentment in Christ. Scripture offers helpful instructions to us on how to manage the resources He provides.

Last Sunday Pastor Buddy shared from Philippians 4:10-20 on the secret to contentment. This Sunday we’ll focus on how to effectively manage what God blesses us with in order to honor Him with our resources.

>>>Join us for worship this Sunday or join us online as we continue, Finding Contentment.
