MINISTRY SNAPSHOT

As we were wrapping up our Re-engage group over Zoom, couples shared their faith journeys.  An older gentleman told about surrendering to Christ after the passing of a young girl; he wanted faith like her.  Then, another woman shared:  “That girl was a friend of mine. When she passed, we prayed people would come to Christ because of her death.” She was moved by how the Lord answered that prayer. God’s story is woven through community.
