Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven Is Near

How do you prepare for Christmas? Is your tree ready? Are all the decorations in the right place? Do all the lights work? Do you have your gift list completed? Do you have gift cards for all those hard to buy for persons? Are you one of those who do the last minute, Dec. 24 […]

Keep Watch
