The anointing was truly on Concord this morning and again this afternoon! We thank God for all of the choirs and the Praise team as they invigorated and reminded us about the reason for this holiday season. We thank Him for an awesome Pastor and Associate Ministers to feed us with His word! Pastor Bridges encouraged us to head toward the light when we find ourselves in dark tunnels in life in the sermon “Putting Your Light in the Right Place” (Matthew 4:12-16). Even in our lowest days, Jesus said He is with us ALWAYS! We just need to humble ourselves and make our way toward Him! Glory hallelujah! This afternoon, Minister Loretta Holmes followed with the good news that “It’s time for a Breakthrough” (Acts 16:21-30)! Just continue to pray, praise, and do what He wants you to do and He will bring you out of the darkness! It’s not too late to get a CD or DVD of either of the services, please contact Bro. Nathaniel Sarratt or one of the Audio/Video team members to get your copy today. If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us next Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
