  • A young SDA church family is in need of ALL kinds of home furniture and utensils.  Contact Pam Madala

  • You can now register and see it on your computer, the movie Sabina, Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years.  
  • Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a true story of biblical love and forgiveness that has inspired millions around the world. Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years is the story of how God’s love transformed an ambitious, worldly atheist into one of the greatest Christian women of the 20th century. The film opens with Sabina Wurmbrand risking her life to show Christ’s love to three Nazi soldiers. Why would a Christian from a Jewish background risk her life to help her enemies — members of the army that killed her entire family?
