Dollars for Dummies - Message #2

This Sunday we continue our Dollars for Dummies series as we look at what the book of Proverbs says about money and finances. Below are the verses from Proverbs that we will be talking about this Sunday in all three of our morning services. As we celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday, our Early Childhood Choir will be singing and there will be outdoor baptisms taking place in between each service. We also will be seeing a clip from an old Saturday night Live sketch with Steve Martin that will amaze you at how it fits the Scripture we will look at Sunday. Remember, you can watch our 10am service live on the internet by going to and clicking on “watch live”.
