As we come to the close of another year and look back at the mountains that we have climbed, we see why it was so important to be free and free indeed in 2023. Allowing the Lord to set us free is another step towards what He really wants. The Lord wants more in 2024. Getting free from bondage is a continuous part of our sanctification. It facilitates us giving Him all of our heart, mind, and soul as Jesus commanded in Matthew 22:37.
Our Sunday services have been amazing as the Lord spoke through many messengers with one voice confirming His love, direction, instructions, and even warnings, all meant to build us up to be overcomers in these last days. We want to acknowledge the small, faithful team who maintain the office and building, lead the ministries, and serve every Sunday despite their own personal challenges. These soldiers in the Lord’s army understand being faithful in season and out of season. We thank the Lord for our F.O.L.D. and prayer group leaders, our Wednesday Bible teachers, and our diligent prayer ministry. Thank God for our Outreach ministries, the Clothing Closet, and Grief Share. They give us the opportunity to reach out to the Community and obey Jesus’ command to go into all the world. More ministries and leaders arealready planned to begin in 2024.

Our 25th Church and Pastoral Anniversary will be on Sunday, Jan 28th. Join us for a powerful service and lunch upstairs. We encourage you to make a fresh commitment to the Lord as the world decays around us. It is essential that we pull together, cover one another in prayer, and reach out to the lost. Give God more, and you will be blessed to overflow. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Pastors Clarence & Ja’Ola Walker
