DAVID: Unlikely Hero – Just Like You

King David was an unlikely hero…just like you. God took this poet writing, music loving, shepherd boy, and formed him into a mighty King. Yet David was a man of great passions, driven ambitions, and fierce temper who was also known for deep relational connections. David shows the whole spectrum of experiences and emotions that you and I have, yet God calls him a “man after His own heart.” Even though David fails God many times, he loves God wholeheartedly.

24/7 Prayer

This is NOT a class about prayer, this is a group that gathers to PRAY! 1 John 5:14-15 tells us, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

Love & Respect

Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires, the Respect He Desperately Needs, is based on the biblical passage from Ephesians 5:33.
