Prayer Corner: God’s Deep & Healing Waters
“But the swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt.” Ezekiel 47:11
At 10 am Christmas morning, we will finish our season of Advent messages called “GOD in the FLESH!” We will rejoice in the wonder of that day with many songs & will learn again about the gift of Heart Freeing Light we have through faith in Christ.
At 10 am New Year’s morning, we will begin our New Year by focusing on some of the first & last words spoken about & by Jesus. We will also receive our Star Cards as we begin our New Year.
