Grace Alliance Church Offers Special Meetings
While many are the promises of God, it seems laying hold of those promises is a difficult and complex mystery. Yet God says he changes not and is no respecter of persons. What he has done for one, he’ll do for all. Yet the church has made it complicated or written it off as for yesterday. God promises a church that is powerful to bring hope to this troubled world. God wants to use you and you will be surprised when you find out who you are in him. There are answers to all our questions.
Grace Alliance Church, 214 Main in Filer, will hold special meetings at 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday to answer these questions. Information: 326-2424.
