Tornado Relief

June 1-7, 2014

On November 16, 2013 I had just returned from leading a mission team to Moore, Oklahoma for tornado relief after their May 2013 tornado.  It had been an amazing week.  The next day I turned on the TV to find out that a tornado had just hit Washington, Illinois.  


I knew that would be our next mission destination.

This seminar is for Christians of all ages who want to improve their fellowship with God and dramatically increase ability to discern God's will.  Clergy and laity alike will enjoy these eight very practical lessons taken from the Bible.  Both sessions, led by Rev.

Open Secretary Position

Wendy and Grace are very excited about this new beginning and hope that you, their church family will be happy for them and keep them in your prayers through this fresh start. Thank you.
