A parable

January 19th, 2017

By: Trevor Freeman

Topic: Citizens of Heaven

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

Random gifts

January 8th, 2017

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

My prayer this week is that we will find a way to bring a gift to someone who needs it; and that we will receive a gift of God when one is offered.
