Simple + Southern Sunday No. 40

“This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true;
    he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him”
Psalm 18:30
You may have noticed by now that each week on Simple + Southern Sunday, we start off with a picture of a church.  While all of the buildings you see from week to week are architecturally beautiful and eye-catching, the church is so much more.  The church is not just a building…it is God’s people.  This week, you will see the words of God and what he says about his bride, the church.
We hope you enjoy! church “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers…
