Many who are in the midst of grief are anxious to get to the anticipated destination: a return to normal. Sometimes we cannot get back to how things used to be. Instead, we learn to navigate the journey with a God who will never leave and people who want to walk alongside us.  

Practice What You Preach

Most people want a place to belong. Those who follow Jesus find that and much more. In Luke 9, we look at several things that come as a result of following Jesus and what that means for us as church members.  


We have always understood that prayer is a way that we connect with God, but as church members our prayers are another way we can connect with one another.
