Despite the rumor that we were no longer meeting, we celebrated one year of worship together. A part of me wanted to preach a typical message that was about high numbers and all the bragging rights that many new churches (especially splits) have. We didn't split. I didn't try to steal anyone from another church. … Continue reading Happy Anniversary: One Year of Overcomers Church
