Blessings Uncovered:
Found in Unexpected Places

Our readings and sermon for tomorrow will redefine the way we might look at things. From the outside, sometimes those who are blessed appear to be cursed, and those who are cursed appear to be blessed. It is only through God's love, mercy, and power that we begin to see that things are not always what they seem and that those who trust in Him are blessed and will never be put to shame. 
Our worship schedule is Sunday at 8:00 and 10:15 a.m. and
