December 2016 – The Great Gift Exchange Pt 1

The Great Gift Exchange Pt 1 – December 2016 Series

Pastor Doug Pyszka

A gift exchange is where a donor meets recipients with generosity, kindness and love and an exchange takes place.  God has delivered gifts to us and we must acknowledge His gifts and accept them for us to use them.  The gifts that God has given to us apply to every believer and can be accepted or rejected.  Open your heart and value God’s gift today.
