“Discerning the Times” | Pr. Mark Howard
How do the current movements in our government and our world regarding freedom of speech, abortion laws, health mandates, etc., relate to liberty of conscience and our prophetic message?

This week’s Sabbath School lesson talks about “The Good News of the Judgment.” What’s so good about the judgment? As it turns out, the good news is that God is good.
We offer programs for children and youth. Young people under 18 must have an adult take responsibility for their safety and behavior. Swimming or playing in the lakes and ponds is prohibited. Bicycles and skateboards are prohibited. This is for everyone’s safety.
