Don’t Forsake Community
by Ministry Support on April 30th, 2021
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17)For nearly the past year, the church has been forced to radically alter how we do business in light of this global health crisis.

Beyond the Church Walls
by Ministry Support on September 24th, 2020
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
