Our churches aren’t stopping, but are becoming different types of churches!
As we creatively look for kingdom opportunities, we will focus on what is truly important: we will encourage each other in our faith; remain passionate in our worship and prayer, and look out for one another and caring for each other and being disciples to the world.
