This Week in WORSHIP
Hope for a New Year #3: At the Crossroads
StoneBridge is at a crossroads. A pastor for thirty years has retired, and the church will soon begin to look for its next installed pastor. How should the congregation engage this transition? God’s people have faced change ever since Moses told Pharaoh to “Let my people go.” The Bible has a lot to say about what to do in times of change. This weekend we will look at what it means to stand at a crossroads and seek God’s direction. Join for an inspiring message from Interim Pastor Neal Nybo.
