September 13 – 19

We’re expanding our usual JOURNEY schedule, allowing more time to go deeper as we read Matthew one chapter a day – focusing on Jesus with journaling, worship songs, and impactful videos. Jesus calls us to a new way of thinking, a new way of doing life.

Invite your friends and family to join you as we take time to know the real Jesus.
