Glorify God, Live Together, Make Disciples

Sunday Mornings in September: Habakkuk

This September, on Sunday mornings, we will begin a study in the Book of Habakkuk. This book is written with brazen honesty by a man who did not understand what was happening in the world around him. In fact, he even found himself questioning God’s character and his commitment to his people. It is a…
