“Give thanks to the Lord! Proclaim His Name; Make known His deeds among the people. Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works. Glory in His Holy Name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who see the Lord.”
If you answered “yes” to the questions above, then we hope that you will join us as we gather to say Toda Adonai in worship and fellowship. Let us proclaim His great Name and declare His wondrous works in our lives.

A Relationship with the Almighty

One might say that the theme of the entire Bible is God’s desire for a relationship with mankind, a relationship which began immediately after He first formed man and cautioned him not to eat of the fruit of just one tree in the Garden lest, “on the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die” (Gen 2:17). In 2 Corinthians 6, Paul reminds us of God’s desire for a restoration of that relationship by doing something that seems so simple yet is so rarely done.
