This Year We Take New Ground!
As a church family, we are entering a holy moment in the story of our lives. We have been sacrificing and building a new campus, a larger platform, believing it will yield more good for God’s glory.
Monday, January 10th, we begin a 14 day fast as a church family. Let us take these 14 days to prepare for what God has in store for us in this upcoming year.
Fasting is the voluntary surrender of something we need or love to remind us that we need and love Jesus more. Prepare by asking God what you should surrender during this fast.
