CHURCH DAY

“Nowadays there are many surviving churches, but few are alive.” А. Kolomiytsev No more, no less but 18. Grace Family Church celebrated its full age lively and joyfully in the context of fellowship and worship. Church is a fruit of God’s work from its first brick to the last person in it.
