I’ve started a series with the youth on Sunday nights called “Holy Habits” Last week we talked about Why we should study the Bible, and this week we talked about How we should study the Bible. We’ve got a great group of teens, but tonight, either I was too long winded or the rainy weather just got to them, because

They are helping us come us with a master site plan for our church property. I’m excited about the increased visibility that this will bring us in our community. We really emphasized at our

Saw this over at Catalyst blog. As churches we had an awesome opportunity to connect hurting people to God, but how good of a job did we do?
