All That is Fair: Earn the Right to Be Heard

Pastor’s Note: A Beautiful Evening
Pastor’s Note: A Beautiful Evening

A couple of weeks ago on a Tuesday night about 75 parents of young children gathered in the Lodge to eat tacos, share the joys and struggles of parenting, and be encouraged and equipped for pointing their kids to Jesus. Across the street about 80 of their kids ate pizza, shared toys… [more]
