For him, Christ was risen but the Church was just an inf...

Thoughts from Pastor Katherine June 22, 2020 This past Friday was Josh's (my husband) company's volunteering day. Instead of working, they were invited to spend the day doing something for the community.

So many of them feel suc...

I found nothing in the open to answer that question in 2015, but I did find something in this obscure piece of info...
