LOVING an entire area code of people can feel like a pretty tall order. "It’s a big place, and I’m just one person,” you might think. "How can I possibly make a difference?” 

This weekend we launch our fall worship series – but there’s more. Join us in worship for a challenge to see yourself differently – and embrace the power of your own influence.
