Sing ‘n Celebrate ~ August 4th




The author, Sarah Young, shares: The author, Sarah Young, shares: The most direct route between point A and point B on your life-journey is the path of unwavering trust in Jesus. If you should wander from your trust-path, just look to Him and whisper, “I trust You.”

This evening, join us as we are reminded how this affirmation will always help us if we need to get back on track.
