Committed to Christ:
Six Steps to a Generous Life

We are exploring six steps toward a lifelong journey in Christian discipleship in worship.  Each week we will prayerfully assess our individual level of commitment to Christ through six steps toward a more meaningful and fulfilling spiritual life. In addition to Sunday worship, we will hear others share their personal faith stories in worship. You can sign up (HERE) for daily e-mail devotions to help you take that next step. Join us each week as we explore the steps toward being more fully committed to Christ.
