God is calling you deeper.
With the overwhelming reality of what we are facing today, how can we continue to discover God’s vision for our lives? You may even wonder, “Does God still have a plan for me during this uncertain season?”
How do we go deeper when the chaos competes for our attention?
How do we settle our scattered minds and hold on to the promises of God during this time?
There is hope!
You do not have to feel overwhelmed anymore and you do not have to journey alone.
We are inviting you to join Becky and our community as we journey together over the next six weeks to intentionally pause, pray, and embrace a path of abundant hope, peace, and purpose.
