SERMON SERIES through June 9 – Invite Somebody! Everybody you know is in a battle. Maybe the enemy is debt. Maybe it is addiction or cancer. Maybe they are fighting against hopelessness and despair. All of us are at war with some powerful enemies. God is going to work in our midst in the next few weeks to strengthen us and equip us for the fight of our lives. We will be exploring Scripture through a series of messages called “Battles.” Each week we will find practical help for our struggles, all of it centered around one critical truth: the battle belongs to the Lord! You are not in this fight by yourself – the God of angel armies is right in the middle of it with you. And he can’t be defeated.

LEE’S SUMMIT’S DOWNTOWN DAYS: We have the opportunity once again this year to be good neighbors to those who will be visiting the downtown area on Friday and Saturday, June 7-8, as Lee’s Summit celebrates its annual Downtown Days event. We’ll provide free parking to those who wish to use our lots and supply folks with cold bottles of water to quench their thirst. Sign up at the Next Steps desk in the church lobby or call the office if you would like to cover a 2-hour slot on one of those days.
