I am so grateful for over twenty-five folks in this fall’s edition of Discover OGC! I am looking forward tomorrow to sharing with them about the doctrines of grace.

It shows that you want to be more than a bystander, that you want to be involved in ministry in a more significant way.

We also need the spiritual oversight and soul care of faithful shepherds (Heb 13:17).
