Dear Friends,

Are you spending time with Him? Alone? In your quiet place? With no distractions?

Dr. Evans always challenges us to grow in our intimacy with Christ through prayer, fasting and obedience to God’s Word. He also wants us to grow with each other. His weekly updates are so important to how we function and relate to each other as a church family. Please watch the video to hear from our Senior Pastor:

We are at war with an invisible enemy. But this battle is not ours, it belongs to the Lord. When it gets to be too much and you don’t know what to do, get your praise on! In fact, join Dr. Evans this Sunday, April 26, at 10 am (CDT) for “The Power of Praise,” from 2 Chronicles 20:1-25. Choose one of three ways to watch our broadcast:

Here are your weekly updates:
