Life Change

"I had been searching for an intentional community where we would encourage and challenge each other in our walk with Christ. 

In even the past few months with a small group, I have met many welcoming people who share in life together - we discuss difficult topics, real experiences, and the love of God through it all. 

It has been life-changing."

"For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.

And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves

but for him who died for them and was raised again."

2 Corinthians 5:14-15

These numbers only represent the surface of story after story of God’s redemptive work through Jesus Christ in people’s lives. We reflect on 2023 with great thanksgiving and gratefulness.
