Sunday at 9:30 AM-Gathering Online for Worship
This Sunday, we turn our hearts to Psalm 103 and look at The Father Heart of God.  “As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust” (Psalm 103:13).
