When the woman at the well encountered Jesus on that hot desert day, she couldn't have been more surprised that Jesus not only acknowledged her, but offered healing words of grace- words spoken over us even today: bring all you know YOURSELF to be to all that you believe GOD in the form of Jesus to be. No pretense, no excuses, no shame whatsoever... simply come. 
Join us for a weekend of worship offering grace for the broken soul, inspiring music and a message of hope. No pretense... simply come.

God-Craving Lenten Journal

Refocus Questions: Week 2

Daily devotionals that accompany each day's reading are also available on Facebook. They are created by a great Ginghamsburg unpaid servant team. You do not have to be a Facebook user to access them. View here.

What is your understanding of grace?
 In what parts of your life do you need to receive grace?
  Where/to whom do you need to offer grace?
Who or what do you struggle to forgive?
God Craving, a companion journal to our Soul Craving Lenten worship series, is available this weekend at all building 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.
