Lenten Devotional Readings will be sent out each day during Lent to all members and adherents whose email is in the church’s Power Church. The readings (which began on Ash Wednesday) go to Easter. If you haven’t received them already and would like to, please let the church office know (email email@example.com). Thank you.
