The Pastor's Perspective
I will be out of town next week. I will be leaving Sunday afternoon and will return on Friday, April 29th. I am going to Michigan to visit my Mom and to conduct the graveside service for my brother who died this past November. We will be burying his ashes next Wednesday. The service will be at 10:00 a.m. I would appreciate your prayers.
