This Sunday is a huge day for churches and youth ministries in Mt.Pleasant. It is the result of years of prayer, building relationship, and the dedication of a group of individuals, who have a heart to reach our area for Christ, coming together with a common purpose.

Follow the Spirit

Every time I see somebody set a "ministry average" as a "ministry law", I cringe.

Same God, different gifts.
