"Immersed in the Word"
Immersed in the Word- Immerse means “to involve oneself deeply in a particular activity or interest.” We immerse in our work, we immerse in our family, we immerse in our free time but so often we don’t immerse in God’s Word. Why is that? Usually we just don’t make it a priority to spend time with God in His Word. You are invited to join your friends at LMC-River Falls as together we immerse in God’s Holy Word digging into the book of Galatians. We want you to come along and see how beneficial your time spent in God’s word will be. Each Wednesday we will be sending out a brief email including the text from Galatians that will be the basis of the message on Sunday. We hope and pray that you read through it and let God speak to you through this His Word an then when you gather on Sunday morning your learning can continue to grow.
