40 Days In the Word

Our new series, 40 Days in the Word is off to a great start.

We are partnering with our friend, Rick Warren and Saddleback Church and thousands of other churches around the country in a cooperative effort to grow spiritually this Spring.

Here are some highlights so far:
*we launched 116 new small groups
*we have a record attendance in small group participation which is up over 50%
*we baptized 24 new believers
*we had 69 first time guests last week
*we dedicated 16 new babies and hosted our first-ever baby dedication baptism celebration

I'm praying that God will put a hunger in our hearts for His Word through this series. I'm reminded from the book of Ezra and Nehemiah that when the community of faith has a renewed passion for His Word and the things of God that revival often follows.

May God revive our passion and make us people of the book!
