Barb Singelmann will be the preacher next Sunday and she will be preaching about “Family.” You won’t want to miss her message. Thank you Barb for stepping up and covering for me!

I always keep you in my thoughts and prayers! Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

God’s peace,
Pastor Barbara

 

 

 

 

 

Romans 1:2-4

2 God promised this Good News long ago through his prophets in the holy Scriptures. 3 The Good News is about his Son. In his earthly life he was born into King David’s family line, 4 and he was shown to be the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

 

 

This Sunday Barbara Singelmann will be preaching from the book of Romans. She will be sharing about “The Importance of Family.”
