God didn’t just show up, whip up something real nice and then split the scene. No. This boldly loving God stuck around, even when things got ugly. … So, following our Lord, we stick around, too, even when things get ugly. We’re not a one and done organization. We’re here for the long haul.

-Rev. Bart Day
