Branch Out (Sunday, 13 May 2012)

Thanks for stopping by the Deer Creek Charge! It’s great to have you here! This Sunday is Mother’s Day…but don’t worry if you aren’t a “mom” in the traditional sense. We will be honoring ALL people–men and women–who “mother” us all…who care for us and nurture us. We’ll also be looking at John 15:1-17 (“I am the vine, you are the branches…”) and talking about how this relates to current events in the news this week. (It really does…promise! Come and see for yourself…). There are SOO many things going on right now…be sure to check them out in the announcements below! See you at the Creek!
