devotions
August 5th - August 12th

Upper Room

One of the ways that we can best remember who we are, and who God calls us to be, is to spend time in His presence. In 2015, we will follow the devotional schedule published by The Upper Room. May God bless you as you seek Him!

God's Promise: "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
