2012 | by Trent Hunter | Category: The Church

Have you ever said to yourself, “Our church should have a program for that!”? Or maybe, “Our church has too many programs!”

Hebrews 10:24-25 gives us an important command: “let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” This command and others like it mean that we should make plans to be together.
