Will you come to church with me on Sunday?

“Will you come to church with me on Sunday” is most certainly not a blog post title I thought I would be writing this summer, or ever.  Last Sunday, I attended the service that Albright United Methodist Church held on the lawn in front of their church on Centre Ave.  I don’t often go to church, I […]
