Praise God for His presence this morning and His blessings upon us! God is using Concord as a light in our community and in other parts of the world! To God be all the glory!! Pastor Bridges encouraged us today to focus on “Spiritual Development” (Mark 8:22-26). We go through all kinds of physical and mental development, but it is your spiritual relationship with God that will equip you to be able to resist sin and protect you from Satan’s attacks on you! 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 this Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
