RESURRECTION SUNDAY

RESURRECTION SUNDAY   Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection was necessary for washing away our sins, and providing the opportunity for us to be justified before God.

Increased Intimacy With God

INCREASED INTIMACY WITH GOD       One of our prayers for this year is that each one of us increases our intimacy with God.
