“Faith leads us to be wise, fear leads us to sinful responses.” -Dr. Smith
During an uncertain time, we have certain hope that comes only from Jesus. The Gospel is looking outside ourselves and looking to Jesus who can do for us what we can’t do for ourselves.
Amidst concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know how we are responding.
