HOW IS GOD WORKING IN AMERICA?

Are you concerned with what is happening in our country?  If so, join us
on Sunday nights at 6 pm. (in the Children's Building in the large room)
during the month of April as we search the scripture to find answers to
"How is God Working in America?"

We will examine how far our nation has fallen away from God; how God
gets a nation's attention; and what God might be saying to America.
Bring your Bible and join us, starting April 3 at 6 pm.
