This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is,
and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”
In Scripture, we encounter the God who speaks.
He promises to guide His people –
and we can be certain that He will keep that promise.
Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.
