“The greatest thing anyone can do for God and man is PRAY. You can do more than PRAY after you’ve PRAYED. But you can’t do more than PRAY until you have PRAYED” S.D. Gordon. Christmas is a reminder that God answers prayer. Jesus came as the result of centuries of people crying out for a deliverer. Do you need God to do something special in your life? If so, join us on December 5, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. and let us call on God and watch answers come our way.
