What’s Happening

The Message This Week

Grieving & Healing

One of the most misunderstood words in scripture right now is LAMENT. When we Lament, we take an inventory of what was lost and bring it before the Lord and allow His grace to put us back together.
Everyone knows about the historic Rt 66. But we’ve got a new journey in mind. We will make some unique stops along the way as we navigate the real historic 66 books of the Bible.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
