Jesus said ‘I no longer call you slaves… Now you are my friends…’ The body of Christ, more than ever, is in need of friendship. People that you can call friends. Keri Jones encourages us in the importance of having true friends that stick closer than a brother.

This message explores what it means to be ‘A Giver’, how this perspective transforms our giving to God and to others, and how the Lord ‘rewards’ us when we’re faithful and generous in our giving.
