A proper view of God, that glimpses His Glory and moves to respond appropriately, is paramount for all worship. It also is the root of our good works from grace-driven effort.

This week kicks off another year of HymnedOutNovember! And as pastor Jason joins the band for “bluegrass week,” we have a good friend Daniel Gilman join us from Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) in Toronto bring a message that all people need to hear.
