I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”

Today’s Prayer Focus

Let’s pray for the spiritual life of all those who run our country. May they turn to God in their decision-making. Following His leadership will help our country as we face difficulties and decisions.

It’s my understanding that Sunday’s night service, a joint service of Line Creek and FBC, Kentwood will not be streamed online, but may possibly be on U-tube from Line Creek later. To be sure not to miss out, you will need to be in the service as it happens at Line Creek Sunday night. The morning worship from FBC, Kentwood will be streamed online at 10:30 as usual.
