Good Friday & Easter Specials

For many Christians, Gethsemane is a brief rest stop on the way to the main story — the cross. But what is the real truth about Jesus sweating “drops of blood?” And when Jesus prayed, “Not my will but thine be done” what did He want us to learn? The answers to these and more are revealed during "Secrets From The Garden", Thursday, April 9 @ 8pm.
