Hebrews Sermon Series
Starting Jan 19th I will be preaching through the Book of Hebrews until the end of April!
This Book is an amazing Book regarding the power of Christ Jesus and who He is and what He has done for us. 
I am praying that each of us will start to read through this Book over the next 4 months, not just once but as often as we can before I end the series on April 27th!
I will be posting the Scriptures that I will be focusing on each Sunday. As well, be in prayer that God will speak mightily through His Word as we study together!
