This week, Pastor Bobby encourages us from Philippians 3:10-14 and reminds us that God has something bigger for us than whatever it is we're going through, with his message, “Many Start, Few Finish.”Our interview guest is Andrew McNair, a wealth management specialist, podcast host, and author. He advises families on how to plan their estates and to leave legacies for generations to come. His new book, The Giving Crisis: Helping Average Givers Become Everyday Philanthropists, helps others understand tithing to the church and giving in the local community. Special music is provided by Connor Smith, a Los Angeles-based performer, studio vocalist, arranger and composer who has performed across the globe from renowned concert halls to the stages of Universal Studios Hollywood and the Disneyland Resort. Today, he sings "Lion and the Lamb," accompanied by Dr. Marc Riley and the Hour of Power Orchestra. Then, he and Sarah Grandpre perform "Me On Your Mind," also accompanied by the orchestra. Finally, the Hour of Power Choir, under the direction of Dr. Irene Messolaras, delivers a stirring rendition of "Lead Kindly Light/Amen." We hope you'll join us!
