I love the first Sunday of the New Year! We have time to reflect, celebrate and give thanks to God for His faithfulness to us in the year that is now behind us. We also get to look forward to all the opportunities and possibilities in front of us. In some regards, the beginning of a new year is like having a clean slate in front of us: a slate that's ready for the Holy Spirit to write HIS heart and HIS direction for us in the coming year. As a church, 2017 will find us continuing to pursue our vision of seeing thousands saved and healed. And we will continue to give ourselves - individually and corporately - to Love Big, GrOw DEEP(er), and Go Out! I want to invite and encourage each one of us to not only Grow Deep but to GO Deep --to pursue ALL the wholeness that God intends for us and that Jesus secured for us!
