* Facebook Worship Service, Sermon Podcasts & Mystery Bag

 
 
Did you miss the message from this past Sunday? 
Maybe you want to hear the sermon again.
 
We are placing the audio part of the sermons on-line for you to listen to from your computer or download it to your i-pod or mp3 player.  Let us know if this is beneficial or if there are any flaws you find.  We usually have the past Sunday's sermon on-line by Sunday evening.
 
To listen to a sermon, if you have a Windows or Apple computer, click on the "Windows recording" and it should start quickly.  If you have an i-Pad or Android tablet or smartphone, click on "Podcast recording" (It may take a minute or so to download and begin).
