Welcome to Pastor Gary's first message of 2017! The theme for our church for 2017 is "Speak the Word" and Pastor Gary is bringing an introduction of that theme to the church in this message. It seems sometimes that we are just bombarded with adversity. But at the same time, God promises His life in us. That life is what moves us past those adversities and pushes us forward. And we do that by hearing His Word, believing His Word and Speaking His Word!
