Check out the first episode of Pastor Chat. Pastor Andrew and I got together with Pastor Chris from Billtown Baptist Church to chat about the church during these interesting and difficult days we find ourselves in. We plan to release more episodes in the near future. Enjoy!
A friend of mind recently sent this prayer to me. As I read through it, I found it to be very powerful. So, I thought I would try to share it with as many people as possible. I encourage each of you to not only read this prayer but to pray it and make it your own prayer to the Father during these difficult day!
God bless each of you!
Pastor Evan Colford
