From Our Pastor

In the seventh game of the 1962 World Series, the San Francisco Giants had a baserunner on second base where Bobby Richardson was playing.  While the Yankees were changing pitchers, Richardson walked over to the runner on second base and asked him if he knew Jesus as his Savior.
 
When the runner got back in the dugout, he asked another player why in the seventh game of a World Series that someone would talk about Jesus in that situation.
 
The answer is…because knowing Jesus is more important than the seventh game of a World Series.
                 
-Bro. Randy
