Word from Bill
You will note that the sermon focus this week is from my series on the Book of Joshua.
I love this series.
It is all about faith and the various ways to practice it and grow it.
Joshua is a wonderful Biblical story about faith and the series is great.
Check out this one sermon and see if you don't agree.
The name of the message is "How to Take a Risk and Win" from Joshua 5.
Blessings on you as you take a risk for Jesus to reach out and win for Him.
