Lenten Season - Amazing Grace - Wednesday Midweek Worship - 12:15pm & 7:15pm

In honor of the 250th anniversary of the writing of “Amazing Grace” we will have a special Midweek series that ties the words of the beloved song to our lives today as Christ’s disciples. This Wednesday on March 15 (12:15 & 7:15 worship times) and we will focus on John 9:24 “We witness Jesus bringing sight to a man born blind, giving the man the added spiritual vision to see the amazing grace of God found in Jesus, who heals us all.”
