Revival Study begins October 2nd – Adam Hamilton uses his storytelling talent to take us on a six-week journey through England tracing the life of John Wesley. Wesley’s message and his faith continues to speak to us, calling for a revival of our hearts and souls so that our world might be changed. His story is our story. It’s our heritage, it defines our faith, and it
challenges us to rediscover our spiritual passion. Please sign up today! (if you would like to study on a weeknight please see John Blossom)

Worship Team – Are you interested in being part of the worship team that “creates a look” that goes along with the scripture? You saw it happen for Pentecost with flames of fire. You saw it happen during Lent as we created a worship table week after week while building on burlap cloth. Visual greatly enhance our worship experience! We need a few people to brainstorm how worship might “LOOK” if we were walking into the story. Please let Pastor Barbara know if you are interested.
