  1. 5 years ago this Church & it’s sacrament saved my life. I have been visiting annually except this year when COVID 19 cancelled my visit. I woke up this morning thinking of my Church Family @ Peyote Way. This Hot-Summer-Daze posting put the spirit back in my heart & put a warm smile on my face. God willing, I’ll be back next year even if I have to walk there!!!!
