  There Are Times When We Must Believe                         Rev. Jeffrey B. Childs 8/1/23   There are times when we must, Believe and by faith walk.

We’re called to welcome everyone, In the Lord Jesus’ name.   We're called to faithfully follow, Wherever Jesus leads. We're called to use all of our gifts, To help meet
