New Testament Bibles

In the back of the sanctuary, fellowship hall and in the narthex are paperback editions of the New Testament. Please take one and keep it if you need it, or give it to someone you think may want it – a neighbor, friend, co-worker, or even a stranger. This would be an easy way to share Christ’s message, love, and redeeming grace.
