We thank God for “The Love of Jesus”! (John 15:13). Pastor Bridges asked how we can say we love God whom we’ve not seen, but hate our brother or sister who we see everyday? He reminded us to love one another and to fix those broken relationships in our lives before it is too late. As Christians, we must let God’s love be visible in our actions towards each other so that others might come to know Him! We are also thankful for Professor Ivory Wilson for coming and sharing a moment of black history with us. It’s not too late to get a CD or DVD of either of the services, please contact Bro. Nathaniel Sarratt or one of the Audio/Video team members to get your copy today. If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us this Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
