About our service:
The sermon will focus on the use of power by persons of elevated position, and express what is expected of persons of power. We will look at what the Bible says to persons of power about doing what is just and right. We’ll look at how we can expect our leaders to do what is just and right through opportunities at ICARE.
The service will feature our annual ICARE Commissioning Ceremony for the BBUUC ICARE Justice Ministry’s Network Members.
