Pastor Reeder currently is working through the Book of Romans on Sunday mornings and now Genesis on Sunday evenings; both speak immediately to our society’s present state and how to view it from a biblical perspective. Join us this Sunday, Sept. 19, as he opens Romans 4:9–12 with, “The Gospel for the Jew and the Gentile Expounded and Illustrated” and Genesis 1 with, “The Sanctity of Divine Revelation.”
