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

made beautiful

“We thank thee, Lord,
that however hopeless our work may seem,
however dark the night around us,
however meager the response to Thy Spirit,
still Thou hast ordained for us a hope.
We thank Thee that
we can never despair because we know,
past all doubting,
that here and there in this world
Thy kingdom has already come,
Thy will has already begun to rule.
We thank Thee that here and there
are homes made beautiful by Thy presence,
lives lived purely and faithfully for Thee,
children and child-like souls
whose clear and simple trust
brings Thee Thyself down amongst men.”
- J.S. Howland
