On the Rock

Seeds of the Kingdom

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Just before the snow storms hit, we did enjoy a beautiful Sunday of worship. At the close of the Humanize Me series, we took a minute to offer ourselves to the Lord in prayer, recommitting our lives to the Friend of Sinners. I pray in that moment, some gave their lives to Christ for...
