Testimony-JennyPowers from Real Life Church Ankeny on Vimeo. Psalm 40:1-3: I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry.

Forget Santa, Remember Saint Nicholas, Worship Jesus

I'm no Grinch when it comes to Christmas and the many traditions that people incorporate into their celebrations, but when you know the story of Saint Nicholas (you know, jolly old Saint Nick), the myth of Santa Claus loses its draw.

A Now Word From God

Who doesn't want a word from God? To hear him speak is powerful. And if he can give us a "now" word, even better.
