Sunday, January 13


‘Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses’ who have been rejuvenated in Christ… That is our focus this week. Here is an experience common to all: the desert. Christians are certainly not exempt from times in the desert of life’s circumstances. Yet we have a God who renews, and there are stories all around us that testify to His faithfulness that encourage and challenge the faithfulness of us all. He is the God who brings rain in the desert. He is the God who calls us to ‘forget the past’ and push forward to know and feel His renewal in our lives.

If you are new to the church, please join us for Pizza with Pastors on Sunday, Jan. 20, at 12pm, in the Atrium to meet our pastors and staff team. No reservations needed!

Feeling stuck in unhealthy relationships with food? Join us as author Asheritah CiuCiu shares honestly about her own battles with food and a path to freedom. No registration is necessary!
