According to the song's lyrics, "we've rearranged what is right and what is wrong; sometimes drifted from the truth. How do we get back to the virtues that once gave us light? How do we have a faith grounded in Christ, and a hope that endures for all times?" GET BACK TO THE BASICS! Come join the Creative Ministries Team (Puppets) as we re-examine the need for Bible study, prayer, The Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule. God loves us and is talking to us. Are we listening and obeying? Please come to Fellowship Supper on Sunday, November 2nd at 6 p.m., with an evening to follow of fun, puppets, rods, sign language and special effects. Bring a dish and a smile to share. This will be a show for all ages!
