pring Series at
Open Door Baptist
Pastor Keith Kapple will continue the series on the "The Devil's Devices" at Open Door Baptist Church, 301 Franklin Street in Marietta, this Sunday, April 18, in the morning service beginning at 10:30AM. A device, is a scheme to deceive. The Apostle Paul said that we are not to be "ignorant of his devices." The devil has an arsenal of "devices," that he uses against believers to "trick them up" and ensnare them. Being ignorant of those devices makes us vulnerable. This spring series of messages on "The Devil's Devices," will enable you to identify the device he may be planning to use on you.
Please join us this Sunday at 10:30 AM. The public is invited to attend. For times of other services please go to our website at www.odbcmarietta.com.
