Today’s Sermon - Learn of Me: Studies in Matthew
Matthew 19:13-30 “Entrance Requirements”

It was a good week for TeenServe. What an encouragement it was to see young people working on the homes. And it was uplifting to see so many of the people of our church serving meals and snacks, helping with projects, coordinating and leading, etc. Continue to pray for the youth that were here and the residents, that God would continue to use this experience to touch lives and draw many to himself.
