Today’s Sermon: Great Questions – Numbers 14:3
“Would It Not Be Better for us to Return to Egypt?”

Thank you all for your prayers and expressions of care this last week as our daughter Beth sustained serious injuries in an automobile accident. It’s been a difficult week, but the Lord has proven himself faithful in so many ways, and your love and concern has helped uphold us. We will appreciate your continued prayers for her and for us as she stays at our home during her recovery. Pastor Pat
