Hi Friends,

This Sunday, we begin our Christmas Series from the book of Micah: Here Comes Heaven! We’ll be counting down to the celebration of Jesus’ birth by beginning to look at some of the prophets words over 400 years in advance.

Bring your friends and join us at the 9a or 10:30a service.

I look forward to seeing you.

I am excited to jump into the Christmas season with you all this Sunday! There is something so powerful about songs that proclaim the awe inspiring story of how our Savior chose to come to earth as a baby. I encourage you to check out the song that inspired our “Here Comes Heaven” theme below!

Sunday 1/5/19 6p

The first Sunday of each month, at 6 pm, we host our monthly healing service called Restore in our church sanctuary. Please help us get the word out to friends and family – even strangers, those who you feel might be in need of this vital ministry!

It has been my overwhelming experience that healing is not about praying the right words, or finding the right person to lay hands on us, but rather about persistence in prayer. Time-and-time-again I have seen God work miracles as His people persist in prayer, petitioning Him to unleash His divine power against evil, injustice and the broken things of this life!

Won’t you come join us as we persist together as a family, as a body of believers, who are convinced that God is able!

I’m confident that this will quite possibly be the most significant and powerful hour that you will engage in all week long!
