From the Pastor’s Heart: It’s Time to Act—Reaching Millions by each “One” reaching “One”
by Christ Church Tech Department on February 27th, 2024
Recently I cast vision for our Leadership Team at Christ Church. Our key text for our 2024 Leadership Retreat was from Exodus 2:24-25, “God heard their groaning, and he remembered his covenant promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

We believe that it is more vital to teach tithing and give of...

by Christ Church Tech Department on December 14th, 2023

However it is refreshing to read in Amos 9 that God wants to bring “Good News” to us: 11 “In that day I will restore the fallen house of David. I will repair its damaged walls. From the ruins I will rebuild it and restore...
