    Where’s God?

    After a very trying week for my extended family, I was burdened to share my heart through this message. Perhaps some of you are reading this or listening to the sermon because you have lost hope. It is my aim to share the love of Christ and the hope he can provide through himself. Although this sermon does not have the usual notes/outline, I hope that you will jot down some of the verses and that they can become a source of comfort for you. If you would like prayer or find out how you can know Christ as your Savior, please use the contact us tab and send me an email, or give me a call. Jesus Christ desires to have a relationship with you, even if you are at what feels like the end of hope.
