This Sunday we will look at the story of Thomas. Thomas comes with the description of "doubting" because he wanted proof. But isn't that something we all want; proof that something exists, that it is true? As people of faith, can faith and doubt co-exist?
There are people in our neighborhood who do not have a church home. There are people around us who are in need of the healing grace of Christ. God is calling each of us to reach out to them. Please be in prayer. How is God asking you to reach out? I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday.
Yours in Christ,
