For the week of August 14, 2022

 

NEW MESSAGE SERIES

NAME-DROPPING—/nām ˈdräpiNG/—noun: name-dropping is the practice of casually mentioning the names of famous people you know or claim to know in order to impress others or raise your own status through association. As people of faith, we should be name droppers—dropping the name not of celebrities but of our Creator. God elevates our status and God has an impressive resume. Isn’t it time for you to drop a name? Join our Senior Pastor, Dr. Lance Watson for this exciting series as he encourages us to become name droppers!
