Church for Sunday, August 9, 2020 (Railroad 2)

For Sunday, August 9, Jean Pagliaro preaches “Bold Power” based on Isaiah 40:25-31. Jesus’ power helps us to be bold! This is the second in our August series, “Life Is Like a Mountain Railroad.” (Image by Jen Hatmaker.)

Today is the wrap-up for our Rocky Railway VBS. Jessica Gobel shares the children’s time and a God Moment with a slideshow about VBS.
