Qualified by Grace

I have not had time to write an intro for this weeks sermon coming tomorrow, July 3, but we will be working through Titus 3:1-8 in a message titled “Qualified by Grace.”

Meeting at 10:30 AM at Faith Academy in Marble Falls, Texas. Join us if you are able. Pray for us if not. And stay tuned as the sermon will be posted online later in the week.
