I Know That Was You. - Gods411

Hey Church!
How perfect is this...recognizing Jesus in our midst!!


makingitinthefastlane.blogspot.com Read These Great Verses To Encourage you Inside


[04/10/20]   A great idea from one of our congregants: Let's make simple crosses for display in your front yard to symbolize the absolute love, light, and hope that Jesus brings into your world. Post pictures on Easter Sunday for all to see. Let’s see how many crosses we can get on display!


On this Good Friday, reflecting on our past Pilgrimage up Tome Hill. Remembering the sacrifice of Jesus for us all and we place our fears, uncertainties, angst, isolation, and all that causes darkness within, at the foot of the cross.
