“We hadn't been back in church in quite some time. It was great to come back 'home', as I call it. The boys enjoyed the fact that they didn't have to be quiet, and it was much less stressful not to argue with them to sit still." Tara who attended with her entire family, including a son with ADHD to the All God’s Children service at Christ Church Budd Lake. (All Saints’ service is based on their program.)
Come and pray for healing, for strength, for progress, for enlightenment!
