Don’t Waste The Waiting • Alpine Chapel
So much has changed these past couple months. “Normal” seems like a thing of the past as we try to navigate everything that’s different. In the midst of it all, though, is an echo of a promise God made to his people in the book of Isaiah: “I am doing a new thing”. In a time when so much is different, will we receive the new thing God wants to do in our lives?
Join Alpine Chapel for “Don’t Waste the Waiting”, a special message from Natalie Mudd all about finding God’s way forward when everything around us seems unclear.
