Special Guests are our Veterans Day Chapel
HIGH SCHOOL CHAPEL
Tuesday: Our guest speaker was Curt Ammons, a pastor with the Chicago Church of Christ. He shared about his life, drifting along without an anchor. Then God placed some people in his life that witnessed the love of Jesus to him. He spoke to us about being real in our faith and about what genuine faith involves: knowledge, acceptance, trust, commitment. To watch the chapel CLICK HERE
