Lasting Seek

ye the LORD

The prophet Isaiah implored the people of Israel to “Seek ye the LORD.” This has been God’s call to every man and woman through the ages. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by our struggles with our finances, our health, our marriages, and our children. However, the only lasting solution for all of life’s challenges is found in the Lord Jesus Christ. Join us this week as together we learn how to prepare our hearts to seek Him.
