NOT ALONE

From the earliest days it was God’s plan that we should not be alone. In fact, God said, “It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

Whether you are single or married, it is God’s design for you to share your life with other believers. Enjoy meals, adventure and friendship with others. As you share your common experiences, sorrows and joy, you will be greatly encouraged.

Pray and trust in God to provide believers in your life.
