Last Night, Pastor Jonathan Wilson and our team unveiled the practical steps we can take to build towards our vision of "being a hub of HOPE + FAITH" to our community and beyond.
First, Ps Jonathan spoke about the importance of engagement with the people in our world. As we focus on being MORE LIKE JESUS this year, Ps Jonathan encouraged us to do what Jesus did and extend a personal invitation to be in the presence of God and be a disciple of Jesus. We have created these beautiful invitations as a tool people can use to extend a personal invitation to people in their world.
Next, we announced our new weekly schedule beginning March 1! Our team has thought thoroughly about creating spaces to disciple and equip people so they can go out and do the work of the ministry in their world and bring people into the life of the church so they can have a connection with Christ.
CHURCH! 10AM + 6:30PM - We're encouraging everyone to make a commitment to be in one of our church services every week.
[NEW] Word + Life Courses - On Monday nights we'll be holding our Word + Life courses for people who want to go deeper in studying the Word of God or learn skills that are going to help them flourish in their lives.
The Upper Room Prayer Meeting - 6AM - 7AM - we invite everyone to come and be apart of our prayer team as they lift the church up in prayer.
