begins with me
ALAMOSA — At Alamosa Presbyterian Church this week the gospel lesson challenges the apostles, “If you had faith the size of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” What might this mean for us and our faith lives? We look into that with Rev. Don Hanna's sermon titled Faith That Begins With Me. We will also be celebrating communion with people around the globe for World Communion Sunday at our 10:30 worship service. The church is located at 330 San Juan. Come and join us. All are welcome.
