Next Sunday, December 9th, our offering will be for Fuente De Vida Church in Ensenada, Mexico. We as a church continue to support Pastors Jes’us & Evelia from the Fuente de Vida Church.

Food for Thought:

How would you feel if one of the world's super heroes walked beside you and talked with you? Think of this: Hear my voice, in accordance with your love... Psalm 119:149a. God created you so He could love you, and draw you to Himself. He wants to walk beside you, and hear you talking to Him. How much more is the Creator and Saviour of the world than any of its so-called heroes?
