You Can’t Fill Those Shoes Posted By Ken Alvis, Pastor of Community Groups & Senior Adults

Well, it is now 2022.  Typically, every new year is a time for resolutions, which are almost always well-meaning but usually short-lived.  Instead of talking about new year’s resolutions, my encouragement is that all of us focus on how we are wonderfully

On Things Above Posted By Ken Alvis, Pastor of Community Groups & Senior Adults
