Cultivating Prayer - Family
Family devotions will not guarantee that your family never faces any difficulty or hardship, but it will certainly bring the presence of God into your home and build faith and confidence in God. So make devotions a priority in your family.
Here is your opportunity to share with everyone, that you belong to Jesus. If you would like to be baptized during the February 16th service, please sign up at HitTheRiver.com, on the Church Center app or at a kiosk next to the fireplace.
