Supply List
August 12-27, 2017

This time of year everyone has a list. We want to make sure we have everything needed and required for a new school year. This simple list from the prophet Micah has stood the test of time. It should be part of every Christian’s ongoing supply list. It is part of how we participate in
God’s desire for a world of common good.
