The Importance and Impact of Small Groups

Lives are sharpened in a small group because you can grow in ways that otherwise would not happen in a larger group of people. Small groups help build a level of intimacy that is easily lost in larger groups, which is why we cherish them so much!

To Those Who Encountered the Lord This Weekend

Everyone loves and looks forward to retreats because God always meets us so powerfully while we’re on the mountain.  Every year when we get back we say this, but it’s true: you can encounter God like you do at retreat wherever you are.  But how? God recently answered this question for me and I hope that it speaks to you too.

I want to hear from you

In Proverbs 11:14 it says, "Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety."It is not only important to hear many voices, but to also see from a different perspective. Even more so in the body of Christ, we need each other and no part can say to another,"I have no need of you".

A call to pray

God has put it on my heart tonight to ask for prayer on behalf of the Jr. High & High School students of our Youth ministry. Week in & week our leaders come along students who are struggling with addictions, depression, backsliding, among many other things. And there are also students who are growing the gifts God has given them, sharing the gospel, and giving themselves to the work of God.

I’ve been a mom for 24 years and I’ve had some glorious days where I, in fact, have been “Super mom” You know her right? The cape flapping in the wind, a giant M on her chest. The power stance, hands on hips, shoulders back, head high. I’ve been amazing.
