EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Our God is a God who answers whenever we call upon His Holy Name. One of the ways God reveals Himself to us in scripture is through His Names. Each one has significance. Each one tells us something important about God, His character, and how He relates to us.

Praise the Name of God! Because of our Savior, Jesus Christ and the “free gift” He offers to us, we can call upon the Name of our Lord today at any time. May we seek to serve Him today in every way possible.
May we each choose one of God’s names in scripture and try to memorize it today.
