Everyone is encouraged to support the Games Family by attending the Benefit this coming Saturday, 5-8 p.m., at the St. C.

Everyone has known the heartache of failure at some point in life. But failure should not cause us to separate ourselves from God. Instead our weaknesses and failures should bring us closer to God. What can we do when we have failed? That is the question Phil Sanders will address in next week’s broadcast, “I Have Failed.”  The weekly program can be Sundays at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, ch. 7.
