Is there anything more encouraging, more fulfilling? Perhaps not, but there is something more basic: to meet with God. To linger in His presence, to shut out the noise of the city and, in quietness, give Him the praise He deserves. Before we engage ourselves in His work, let’s meet Him in His Word . . . in prayer . . . in worship." ---- Chuck Swindoll Monday, October 9th – 7:00 pm – Women’s Bible Study - “Stepping Up” with Beth Moore.
