More than ever, we need the people of God to be salt and light in our culture. We need God’s love working in and through us for the benefit of mankind. With that said, our members answered the call to perform acts of kindness towards our first responders. Our impact was deeply felt in our neighborhoods and communities.
Let’s continue to pray for our Senior Pastor as he brings the church to the forefront of healing our nation. Watch Dr. Evans’ video below regarding our weekly updates.
