15 MINUTES TO CHANGE THE WORLD
We continue to gather on Sundays, 10:20 – 10:35 AM, in the Celebration Center for a time of prayer together leading up to Easter weekend. This is one way that we can prepare our hearts and ask for God’s leading in the days ahead. Do you want to change the world? It begins here. Join us during these special moments over the next few weeks. NEXT WEEKEND: OUTREACH
Next weekend, we welcome Daniel Nelson as our speaker for the upcoming Outreach Weekend. Dan and his wife, Melinda are our missionary partners through Converge Worldwide in Guadalajara, Mexico, and the focus of their ministry is church planting. We are excited to hear how God is working in other areas of the world!
