Quote & Prayer of the Week

"Realizing your potential and spirituality begins with seeing yourself as imperfect with the intent of working towards perfection.” — Victor Vote


Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End, in this time, may we pause and listen for Your word right here and now. You hold all of eternity, yet our time is brief. We give over this time now, so that in all our time, we may draw closer to You, Ancient of Days, Holder of Tomorrow. Amen.


Loving God we lift up to you…
