"Give All You Can"
Sun, October 22, 9 and 10:30 am , The Mount & The CrossWalk Worship Services

Decisions move us from one place to another and we can’t go back to where we were. But God goes with us to where we are going. In addition to going, God promises Eve further life and a future (offspring). The future is re-defined by what happened in the past, but God’s judgement is merciful and our future can be joyous.
