Maranatha Newsletter – September 7-14

Rev. David Wiggs began his series of lessons for the month of September on the topic of "Where in the world is God?" versus "God is making all things new!" He challenged us to change our perspective as we read scripture and as we live in the world. It was a thought-provoking message. He will continue on this topic next week.
