Seek – The Present (Angels)

Seek – The Present (Angels)

Jesus’s presence is constant and available but it must be sought out. This was true for those who sought Christ on that very first Christmas and it’s true for us today. Through his Holy Spirit, Jesus draws near to those who draw near to him and he promises that those who seek will find him. Join us for worship from November 30 to December 24 to seek Christ this Christmas.
