“He tends His flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs and carries them close to His heart;
He gently leads those that have young.”
We praise God for His tender care. His love for us is everlasting,
and He carries us with gentleness and kindness.
We praise God for His mercy and grace.
Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.
