SERMON SUMMARY – Chrisy Ennen
            Joshua 24:1-25 - Joshua, who had both been told of God's promises and provisions of the past and lived through God's leading and protection in the present, provided the people with an opportunity to reaffirm their choice to serve God into the future. We have that opportunity daily. We get to look back over the ways in which God has provided and cared for us in the past so that we are able to recommit to serving him in the future. We get to reaffirm our choice to serve the Lord when faced with new struggles and circumstances. We get to share our stories with others and call them into a place where they, too, can commit and recommit to serve God alone.
