ERCC News - Week of 7/12/2024

NEW WORSHIP SONG
"What love can remember no wrongs we have done?" is the opening line of this song. Romans 5:8 tells us "God demonstrates his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." We do not deserve this gift of salvation, yet God provided a way for us to have a relationship with Him. Our sins they are many, but His mercy is more!

Song for July: His Mercy Is More by Matt Papa and Matt Boswell.
