Carl Laferton | March 17th 2022

God’s Rules vs. God’s Freedom

Chris Morphew | March 3rd 2022

Bethany McIlrath | January 29th 2022

One boy was left on the carpet. Everyone else had been picked for a team game by a friend, but he was left all alone. He didn’t lift his eyes when the kid’s ministry worker assigned him to a team and reminded the other kids to “be kind.” My heart hurt for the little guy.... continue reading

I’m Dreaming of a Thankful Christmas

Ed Drew | November 23rd 2021
