Due to circumstances beyond Jill and I’s control, we were unable to record worship for this final Wednesday in Lent prior to Holy Week. The plan was to bookend the 5 Wednesday’s with a Healing of the Nations prayer service. Therefore, join us today for the first Wednesday Healing of the Nations Prayer Service (see below). The bulletin can be found below the video.
