  "Joy from the Wells
 of Salvation"
2014 OR District Convention News


Right - -  Convention logo:

The Sword is of the Spirit working through our baptism giving us strength.  The Water is going up from the font of our baptism from which we are blessed--not a thing of the past, but living waters ever present.  JOY is purple--emphasizing that true royalty--Jesus Christ is our joyous salvation.
