Welcome to the Family – Getting Closer to Others

Last Sunday we began our new “Welcome to the Family” series focused on answering the question: “What does it mean to be a member of the Indianola Church of Christ?” Our first topic was “Getting Closer to God.” This Sunday we will focus on “Getting Closer to Others.” Through studying three key biblical passages, we will discover just how important our relationships…

Psalm 23:6 – Traveling Light

As we close out our series on the 23rd Psalm, we find that our path has led us full circle.

We appreciate all of your thoughts,…
