Matthew 5:14-16  “You are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeps shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”

Signing up is as easy as finding your Church Representative and signing up with them at your local church!
