God Craving, a companion journal to our Soul Craving Lenten worship series, is available this weekend at all worship exits.
You are invited to take one for your own personal Lenten journey. Each Monday you'll reread the weekend message scripture story - with additional related scriptures throughout the rest of each week. Daily reflections will uncover layers of spiritual depth to consider. Best of all, each day space is provided for you to write out your own thoughts and prayers, processing your growing relationship with God.
