Hughes Memorial Weekly Update -Monday, June 11th Changing our Community with Real P.O.W.E.R.

Memory Verse
"He also said, "With what can we compare the  
 kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it?  
 It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon 
 the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on 
 earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes 
 the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large 
 branches, so that the birds of the air can make 
 nests in its shade."
  -   Mark 4:30-32

Thought For the Week
