Happy Easter 2020

COVID-19 The message of the gospel never grows old. It’s always fresh, vibrant and alive just as the Word of God is as living, alive and powerful as it has always been. In the beginning was the Word; and without the Word made flesh, who came and dwelt among us, namely Jesus Christ, was nothing […]
