Welcome

I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom (Ps. 145: 1-3). Christ reconciles us to the Father through his blood shed for us in order that we may be made holy. Let us praise Him and surrender our lives to him more fully today.
