Kicking off FOCUS’ 50th Birthday Celebration on Sunday, February 5th, the Rev. Rick Spalding offered a powerful witness to the ministry of FOCUS. The Rev. Spalding explored Matthew 5:13–19 and challenged the FOCUS churches to continue to live into our calling to do together what we cannot do alone—respond to our neighbor’s needs in the city of Albany and beyond, as God’s servant people in a broken and hurting world. Choirs came together from the six churches to form a 60-voice choir.
SERMON: Who You Are, Rev. Rick Spalding
ANTHEM : Speak To One Another, Berger
