Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

While things have been busy, it has been a great chance to grow together spiritually and as a community. If you haven’t participated its not to late. Tonight we meet for supper and worship from 6 to 7 pm. Leading worship is our own, Daniel Bondaczuk. Many thanks to all those who have helped provide meals every evening!

It is a wonderful thing to have a son or daughter praying for their mom and dad! It is a wonderful thing to know that someone is praying for you! “We do not value the power and efficacy of prayer as we should. Prayer and faith will do what no power on earth can accomplish.” (Ministry of Healing, p. 509)
