The Book of Malachi: Hearing God Part 6 - This week we are in Malachi 2:17-3:5.  We are challenged to consider how our prevailing culture redefines [constantly] the concept of "goodness". What was good 50 years ago is no longer good, and what is good today was not good 25 years ago... What does a "good" church family look like?

The nursery will be staffed and KIDZone will be happening.
