GRACE FOR LIFE: Healing thru Music
EPCALM is committed to uphold each patient’s healing journey to wholeness, drawing strength each day upon God’s abundant grace. In ministering to those afflicted with adult leukemia, EPCALM presents their journey as a walk of faith completely dependent upon grace; that this faith is anchored on the source of Hope beyond suffering, which leads to a life empowered and victorious in God no matter what our circumstances.
This concert, dedicated for God’s glory alone, harnesses the creative musical gifts of the EPCALM advocates and volunteers, calling upon God’s power of healing to restore our body, soul and spirit to wholeness.
