He ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate. He asked the men, "Why are you eating grass?" "We don't have any money for food," the first man replied. "Then you must come with me to my house," insisted the selfish man. "But, sir, I got a wife and three kids here," said the man.  "Bring them along!" replied the selfish man. The second man exclaimed, "I got a wife and six kids!"  "Bring them as well!", the selfish man proclaimed as he headed back to his limo. They all climbed into the car, and once underway, one of the men expresses, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."   The selfish man replied, "It is no problem, I am happy to do it. You'll love my place. The grass is almost a foot tall." The Bible Sa

National Day of Prayer Service on The Front Steps fo Our Church on May 3rd

The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer has great significance for us as a nation as it enables us to recall and to teach the way in which our founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical decisions. It stands as a call for us to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people. The unanimous passage of the bill establishing the National Day of Prayer as an annual event, signifies that prayer is as important to our nation today as it was in the beginning. We will be joining Christians around the world by gathering on the front steps of our sanctuary on  Thursday, May 3rd @ Noon  for prayer over our nation as one voice united. "Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will
