God wants to meet you right where you are…and so do we. It would be our honor to meet you for worship this Sunday. It’s important that we find those times to sit in the presence of God and seek his Kingdom in our everyday lives. You’ll see us talk about these things on a Sunday morning. What does it look like to live my life for Christ? What does it look like to love as Jesus loves? What does it look like to share God’s love for us with the world? Those are the moments that make our days more and more in line with God’s purposes. We’d love for you to join us in whatever way God is working in your life today.
