Fear Not. God's Got This!
Go And Be The Church


During times of difficulty, it's an opportunity to serve others and show the love of Christ. The following two blogs will give you ideas on how to do that.

When things are hard, it's important to remain thankful. See what Jesus was thankful for in the blog below.

When bad things happen, the first question many people have is "Why?". We try to offer a short, but thoughtful answer below.

When people are stuck at home, it's always a good idea to pick up a good book! See some of the top recommended books below (including Pastor Mark's recommendation).

For even more recommendations from Pastor Mark, see what he recommends here.

Jesus changes everything in incredible ways. There's nothing more encouraging than seeing God's work of salvation in people's lives.
