Meeting Matthew

Meeting Matthew – We begin our journey with an introductory message in to the book of Matthew.

Access For Anything – 1 John 5:14-21

Access For Anything – 1 John 5:14-21 In our final sermon in our series on love, we talk about prayer. When we are to prayer for others, and perhaps when God might want us to pray for them in a different way. We are led by love in all things. That fact should be recognizable…
