Looking Back, Moving Forward

Looking Back, Moving Forward

From the Pastor’s Desk I love Christmas and New Years! Both are a reminder that God is doing new things all the time. Christmas, of course, reminds us that God sent His son Jesus to make a new covenant with us. A simplified plan if you will, based on the simple commandments of loving God […]
