First Connections June 8, 2018


First Baptist Church Shawnee

Be Disciples. Make Disciples.



I look up to the mountains;

does my strength come from mountains?

No, my strength comes from God,

who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.

God guards you from every evil,

he guards your very life.

He guards you when you leave and when you return,

he guards you now, he guards you always.

From Psalm 121, The Message
