Under Construction: Part Two: Laying the Foundation: Ephesians 1:1-3
Sunday, April 23, 2017 :: Brian Lightsey

In our growing community, we are all familiar with construction zones. They are not pretty, convenient, or comfortable and may even be dangerous, but construction is also absolutely necessary for growth.

In a similar way, no matter how much it may seem like we have it all together, each of us is incomplete, needing growth and maturity on some level. All of us are under construction.

This sermon series called, Under Construction, is about how God wants to meet you where you are and construct you into the more complete person he is calling you to be.
