Sermon Notes

Pastor Darryl Dash joins us one more time to share ‘Worship and Belong’ based on Psalm 122.

Two Reasons Church Matters

1. Church matters because of the “wow” factor
2. Church matters because it brings people together

Three Actions

1. Show up
2. Pray for the good of the church
3. Seek the good of the church

7. What did you find helpful or challenging about this Sunday’s message?

“The glory of the gospel is that when the church is absolutely different from the world, she invariably attracts it.” (Martyn Lloyd-Jones)
