The Church that Feeds People

Pentecost service

Saints Are Us

Remember the Church is Like a Patchwork Quilt!

quiltWe are made up of many different parts, and in many ways look very different from each other, but are all united in Jesus.  This week the Church celebrates the lives of these folks!

Remember to look them up online to read about these witnesses for Jesus.  See you next week with names of more heroes of Christ!  I am your bro. John, O.C.P.
