Join us for 21 Days of Prayer and Bible Reading.
As a church, we’re devoting ourselves to the Bible,  and to prayer as we kick off 2019— and we’d love to have you join us!   There is something absolutely life-changing about daily feeding ourselves on God’s word— and we want to do two things:
  1. We want to cultivate (or re-cultivate) this incredible spiritual discipline, and
  2. We want to synchronize our hearts with God’s and with one-another.
There’s something profound when we—as a church— we can share what God is speaking to us, as we read the same scriptures each day.  So join us for this 21 day journey! Each of the first 21 Days of January, check back here for the prayer focus and daily reading plan.

 

Join us

Commit to praying and reading God’s word for the first 21 days of 2018— and watch how God meets you along the way.  Get email updates each day of this challenge!
