THIS SUNDAY’S MESSAGE
”The Power of a Changed Life”
Everybody wants their life to be a great story, however, the more shameful parts of our past can complicate things. The truth is that God doesn’t waste our pain, he uses it in the lives of others for good. That’s what we’ll see in Jesus’ encounter with The Woman of Samaria.
