Chaplain’s Message

“In the matchless gift of His Son, God has encircled the whole world with an atmosphere of grace as real as the air which circulates around the globe. All who choose to breathe this life-giving atmosphere will live and grow up to the stature of men and women in Christ Jesus.” (Ellen White, Steps to Christ, p. 68).

May you breathe the atmosphere of God’s grace this week!

Please pray for our Secondary Week of Prayer with Pastor Lyle Notice that is taking place this week here at CWAA.

Pastor Brent Wilson
