Sunday Afternoon Ministry
The apostle Paul told Timothy "all scripture is breathed out by God." There are many important messages we hear in life but none compare to the message of God to us, the Bible. At Langstaff we love the bible and for that reason we open it, and try to learn from it each and every week. Please see below to listen to some of the sermons we have enjoyed over the past few weeks. If there is a particular message you're looking for some specific Sunday afternoon ministry meeting please let us know here and we will get it for you.
