This week I will look at Grace. Like so much of what we are learning, the idea that “we get to give” is hard to avoid.
Patti Zuck shared this story to her social media feed after our January Worship and Ministry Night.
We’ve all seen the sign posted on the wall at our doctor’s office. The one with the smiley faces that quickly lose their smile.
My family and I were driving on the highway listening to a worship album.
Nona Baker is no stranger to miracles. She, along side her husband Bill, have been missionaries for Jesus for their entire married lives.

“Have mercy on me” is not a common phrase in our part of the world. This is largely for two reasons. The first is our pride.
We made it! This Sunday, we take a look at the last of the seven “I Am” statements of Jesus in the Gospel of John.
This week in our I Am series we will look at John 10 and Jesus as the Gate for the Sheep and as The Good Shepherd.
