As followers of Jesus Christ we’re called to abide, connect, and now this morning we see that we’re also called to share.

As we continue in our series this morning we consider what it means to be a Christ follower as we look at the element of connection. What does it mean to be connected to the church universal and to be connected to the local manifestation – here at ABC? We consider these important questions by […]
