Morning Service



This Sunday we welcome everyone here especially the GEMS as they lead us in worship and share their theme of thankfulness in all circumstances. It is good to be reminded of this great biblical truth as we give thanks for the assurance of salvation in Jesus Christ. May God be praised as we worship today.
