We had a great Easter weekend of worship. At least two salvations that we know of resulted from out time together. I hope you were able to experience the presence of God in a positive & powerful way.
I invite you to keep it going by joining us this week as we learn more about how to choose joy through the powerful presence of Jesus in our lives.
Here are the main points from last weekends lesson about how Jesus makes a whole new life possible. You can catch the full audio along with a cool personal story at parkviewfamily.com.
