The Road to Damascus

Our next Family Worship service will be Sunday, April 14, where we will hear the story of Paul's conversion to Christianity. What a huge *sign* from God that was for Paul to get stopped in his tracks and learn a new way! When have you been stopped in your tracks?

. . . GO!


Join us as we consider the Signs on the Road of LIFE!
