9 Week Challenge-Digital_01 Screen Title 1920x1080

9 Week Challenge

October - November

Get ready for the 9 Week Challenge! Over the next 9 weeks, we’ll be looking at different spiritual practices and calling you to action. James 1:22 says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” The Bible is meant to be lived out and we’re going to do that together one week at a time.

Make Room

Sundays in December

At Christmas we make room for many things…for people and presents and parties. However, all of this activity can often crowd out the real reason we celebrate Christmas – the birth of Jesus. “She gave birth to her firstborn child, a son, wrapped him snugly, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the guestroom.” – Luke 2:7 (CEB). This Christmas we want to make room for Jesus and open our hearts and homes to experience God’s peace, hope, joy, and love.
