Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

"God puts us into the wilderness to test us,
to stretch our spiritual muscles.
Our earthly wilderness experiences
are designed to develop us into
men and women of faith.
Let's face it, our spiritual roots
grow deep only when
the winds around us are strong.
Take away the tests,
and we become spiritual wimps.
But bring on the wilderness winds,
and it's remarkable how we grow,
as our roots dig firmly into faith."
- Charles R. Swindoll
