“…Say to her, “Is all well with you? Is all well with your husband? Is all well with your child?” And she answered, “All is well.”2Kings 4:26 ESV
Second Kings 4 records the story of a mother whose little boy suddenly died in her arms. Yet even when it looked unbearable, she knew that unexpected trouble was not a surprise to God. She immediately set out to get her friend the prophet Elisha. Twice she was asked if her child was well, and she answered, “All is well.” She knew that God could make a way where she did not see a way. Elisha prayed for the little boy, and he miraculously came back to life.

Chapter of the Month – Redlands CA

The joy of our virtual gatherings comes from a spectrum of locations, time zones, and interests that members and visitors bring. Considering that we are all part of God’s Kingdom, we believe that we are in his will in encompassing our breadth of locations, time zones, businesses, backgrounds and personalities. More

"That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. 9 Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, 10 but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. 11 The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! 12 And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger” Luke 2:8-14
