For those outside of the upper Midwest or eastern Canada, Tim Hortons is a donut and coffee chain co-founded by…… Continue reading Tim Hortons Arrives in Romeo
Yesterday Mike Harding filled the pulpit at Romeo. It was fun to see Mike again and hear about his new ministry, 831 House. Here’s a little video about their ministry in Gulf Shores.

With the forecast saying we…… Continue reading The Melt is On
