Trusting in the Lord

We’ve been attending GRC for 4 years now. We were at another PCA church before where we loved the pastor and community, until one day we decided to transfer to GRC.  We weren’t quite sure why we were moving churches, but felt that the church was too far and the kids needed a church closer to home.
