2017 Sermon Series

I’ve been asked where we were going after the Titus series at Rocky Creek.  As of right now, I’ve got a plan for the rest of the year – series by series, week by week.  While I am open to change, I believe that through the time in the Word and prayer, I am really excited about what is coming up.
