Seeds on the Rocky/Shallow Soil
by Randy Sands
From the Pastor’s ‘Puter:
Winter is now two thirds over and spring is on its way. At the Casey’s store by my house they are counting down the days to spring. It is so exciting to see the numbers growing smaller each time I am in there!
Looking back at January, we were blessed to have John and Donna Reynolds with us one Sunday. John did an excellent job and updating us on their ministry in Guatemala and preaching the Word!
We have been preaching through an awesome series on growing in Christ. It was fun to have Pastor Brian and Pastor C. J. each bring one of the messages. We are continuing on with the Holy Spirit and The Fruit of the Spirit.
