I hope as we travel through the book of Acts we will not only see it as history but also as a training manual for the church. We know what the disciples did in the book of Acts worked, so we do not need to reinvent the wheel. The struggles they had and […]

Mark 1:14-20
It has been said before, “A baby changes everything.” No doubt if you are a parent, grandparent, or an older sibling, you can relate to the sentiment.
