Sunday is the Lord's day


Becoming Christ-like in our hearts

begins with you and me...

serving humbly, as He served in peace and harmony.

Shedding all our selfish ways and putting on His skin...

understanding who we are in relationship to Him.

Giving up our own control, forgetting our own needs...

being Christ-like in our hearts begins with you and me.
