It has been a great blessing over the last few weeks to see the increase in interest and involvement in our Covenant Community Groups. Perhaps now would be a good time for us as a congregation to pause and consider how we might get the most out of these groups....Keep Reading
The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ was God's provision for the redemption of sinners. It was foretold beforehand, and the Old Testament is full of references to the coming messiah.
