Happy Sunday (or whatever day it happens to be while you’re reading this 🤪)! I hope you’re happy and healthy today.
Below you will find my sermon notes for Pastor Steven Furtick’s message from 12/13/2020 called But God Said.
Also, this is giving weekend – so if you feel compelled to begin tithing or to give a year end offering, you can go to elevationchurch.org/favor to do that and to get a graphic containing your word for 2021.
This sermon looked a little different, so it’s not as long. Be sure you watch the sermon for yourself, because I take my notes in real time as he’s speaking so context is needed.
Thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy your week ahead! 💛
