Embrace Your Calling - Prepare for the Future

 January 10th is the first Sunday of the Season of Epiphany.

Epiphany: a moment of piercing awareness, the sudden jolt of understanding. What revelations or understanding does God have for you in this New Year?

Embracing your Calling

2 Timothy 1
      -    Be Thankful
      -    Be Bold
      -    Be Faithful

Prepare for Your Future

Isaiah 43
      -    His Presence demonstrated to you
      -    His Purpose for you is clear
      -    His Perspective is what counts

In this season of Epiphany, we are excited to see what new revelation you will experience individually and as a church as you take steps to embrace your calling and prepare for your future during this time of transition!!
