I don’t have a sad story and I refuse to sing a sad song-because God has been good to me! I am blessed and highly favored of the Lord! Greetings to the saints of the Spring! I am excited about what’s happening in our church. This website is a wonderful tool to enhance our ministry and our fellowship. The scope and size of this ministry is expanding and growing. God is putting meat on the bones of the vision he has given to me. “Ministry to the whole man” is embodied throughout our entire ministerial effort. That theme is evidenced in this website when you see the numbers of people committed to working in different venues of service. From the Youth Department to the Nursing Home Satellite Ministry, our goal is to lift up the name of Jesus. Thank you for the commitment of your time, energy, resources and spirit to the fulfillment of God’s plan in this part of the vineyard.
