Video Series by RIGHT NOW MEDIA
Our next video series following the worship service in the Gathering Place will look at the word Grace. Perhaps the most important word in the Christian vocabulary award-winning author Philip Yancey offers intimate glimpses of God’s life-changing grace. Using candid interviews with real people, he illustrates the power of God to forgive the most horrible deeds, love the unloving, and redeem the seemingly irredeemable.
