So our goal was to express the revolutionary love of Christ in tangible ways, because God showed his love so tangibly in Jesus. We set up four assignments. You responded.
You've been waiting for the results. After sharing them earlier tonight at our Christmas Eve services, we're happy to go public. Wait no longer!
