Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. This is a reminder that many of our fellow believers in Jesus around the world face many challenges in meeting together, talking about Jesus, and sharing the gospel with others. The suggestion: Take courage, and effectiveness in witness for those who are part of Jesus’ church in that area.

Special Thanks
to Mark for filling in for Pastor Wednesday night and this morning due to some health concerns that surfaced this week. This is a very great church family.
