This Saturday the Chapel will be open for prayer from 12:00-2:00pm as we turn our hearts to Washington, D.C. in prayer for our nation.

Please feel free to come pray and take part in this event.
Sunday, September 27
9:15 & 10:45am
Everyone goes through hard times. Jesus Himself assured His disciples that “In this world you will have trouble…” The fact of the matter is, if you’re not walking through difficulty right now, it’s because you’ve either just come through it or it’s on the way. Encouraging words, for sure. But, Jesus finished that thought by saying “…but take heart. I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) He has promised to go through the troubles God’s children face with them, so that they’re not alone. And then, after enduring those hard times, our lives should look different.
This Sunday, September 27 we will focus on 1 Peter 5:1-14 as we wrap up our Flourish series. Join us online or in-person as we continue this fall series together!
