Sermon: Wayne Butler preached from Philippians 1:1-6, speaking of how wonderful it is to worship with other believers, but encouraging everyone that God is still working during this time when it is not possible to gather together. God is still saving souls and encouraging hearts to go deeper with Him, and when this separation is over, it will be wonderful to worship together again.

Special: Ashley Morgan sang “Holy Spirit Be My Guide.”
