                                        "In His Time"
          I wait on God to bring to pass  all He has promised me
         And as I wait I rest in faith in  what I cannot see
         For in His way He will provide  at just the perfect time
         Everything that's good and right  to bless this life of mine

So many do not know about Him yet. You might be that person to help plant a seed. Or come to renew your life of worship and praise to our awesome and incredible God. If your children are in Sunday School, invite a friend or neighbor to come along and experience music, prayer, and especially the Word as we explore new themes each week and make it come to life!! Adults and parents invited too!!!.
