Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Northwest Church of Christ in St. Petersburg, FL. This is also the 25th anniversary of our pulpit minister, Jim Shannon. I am so appreciative to God for all those who have gone before us locally, nationally, and internationally to pave the way for effective ministry. Most importantly we are indebted to God for initiating everything through sending his Son to die for us. Let’s give God lots of praise this morning as we lift our voices in praise and worship.
