Revival Study begins October 9th – 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)
