The Lord Blessed Again Last Week
It is so exciting to see how God blessed our church again last week. All around us we saw His hand – in the salvation of souls, in the baptisms of two new believers, in the addition of new members to our church! We praise the Lord for how He is using our church family to make a difference for eternity.
“Tough Questions: Bible Answers” Family Service Series
The Bible teaches “that in that in the last days perilous times shall come,” (2 Timothy 3:1). Just a few verses later, it describes our culture: “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth,” (2 Timothy 3:7). In our Sunday evening Family Service, we are tackling some of the most important questions facing us today. We are using this time to equip every child, every young person, every Christian with God’s truth to strengthen their faith and help them face the headwinds of the anti-God, anti-Christian culture in which we live.
