WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER! We ARE in this together! And what exactly is “THIS” ? It’s the unique phenomenon called “ministry” that only those who walk in it can fully understand! Ours can be a stressful yet invigorating….frustrating yet gratifying…people filled yet very lonely life. That’s why we need to know that we’re in it TOGETHER. This weekend is a time for YOU!
