We still have a long way to go

This weekend, we are taking some time to reflect, remember and celebrate the legacy of a great civil-rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We'll refocus our attention on what we need to do to enhance our future. Dr. King fought for justice and equality for all people.

The year when ministries unite

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore." - Psalm 133:1-3 KJV
