This weekend we continued our Get Real series and Matt spoke on Getting Real with your Future! I love that he reminded us that, no matter our age, we all have a future and God has the best planned for all of us. You can see this weekend’s message here. Also, if you weren’t able to join us this weekend and would like to give your regular tithe and offering, you can give online by clicking here.
This weekend we also honored all those who are graduating this year from high school all the way up through graduate school. It’s always an honor to celebrate new seasons of life! We are so proud of all of those who graduated and one student that we highlighted yesterday is William Hartsfield. William is 21 years old and he was born with a very rare condition that only 15 other people in the country have ever been known to have. Before he was born, doctors encouraged his parents, William and Janet, to abort William because they didn’t think he would live, and if he did, that he wouldn’t be able to walk or do a number of other things. But, God had different plans for William and this past Friday he graduated from Garner Magnet High School and walked across the stage to receive his diploma! We love the Hartsfield family and their beautiful testimony of faith! Below
