Different But Same

by Jeff Logsdon | November 19, 2023 10:23 PM

This evening during our debrief time together one of the observations about the day together was how different the worship time was, but the same heart for the Lord was so sweet! And the worship was really cool, too.

Taking out the trash and preparing for the drive back home to California today!

Shawn is our friend, seen here heading down the alley. He loved the cinnamon rolls, but he probably would have enjoyed Krispy Kreme just as much. 

Thank you for the wonderful memories and your hearts for the Lord, New Beginnings Community Church! We are overwhelmed with gratitude!
