Surviving the Storm (04-15-2018)
When Peter wrote to the exiles, he understood a deeper sense of His King and Kingdom than maybe we do today. He understood that our life’s would be riddled with challenge and at times suffering.

This week we discuss how to not only to hang onto God’s redemptive and restorative process, but to take part.
