We should read the Bible as a method of worshipping God and enjoying a relationship with Him. While that may sound easy at first, the text of the Bible itself can be a bit daunting to engage with. Fortunately, there are…

Phase 4 Plans [Fall 2020 Strategy]

The current climate in 2020 has removed the possibility of things getting back to normal. Through numerous trials, the world has changed, but that doesn’t have to be a negative reality.
