Why Worship?

Date 25th February 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 Chronicles 16:23-31

Our Forge Youth are wrestling with a number of ‘Why’ questions about the Christian life. Most people who know anything about God know that God desires our worship.

Growing Together – Forgive One Another

Date 04th February 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Ephesians 4:29-32

Among the commands to love and encourage one another, we receive a command for when our Christian brothers and sisters fail us in those very things.
