Managing the Covid 19 Crisis at Howick Baptist  Church

Howick Baptist Church During the Covid-19 Crisis

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

1 Timothy 2:1-4

 Current Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  1 Peter: Strangers & Pilgrims

 

Lean on Jesus, trust in Him for He will never let you down. Listen to what king David did when he felt he was under assault in Psalm 27: 

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
