The Exchange 

Have you ever wondered, “Who is God?”

How do I know if there even is a God?

At our last Chapel Service for 2018-2019, Bro. Jeremy Moore shared an app that explains the Gospel and even has a presentation mode so that you can share it with others. Click on the above link or download the free app!

Character Trait for July:

Cautiousness vs. Rashness
 Knowing how important right timing is in accomplishing right actions.

Colossians 4:5-6Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.
