A Year We Will Never Forget
2021 was an incredible year. It was a year birthed in revival, where God moved our hearts to a new pattern of reliance on the Holy Spirit and a rhythm of intimacy with Him. We baptized more people than we ever have before, welcomed thousands of guests, and saw hundreds come to Christ.
Even in the midst of a season of uncertainty, there is no doubt that God is on the move in our church and in this community. As we look toward 2022, let’s take a moment to reflect on all of the ways that He has been faithful to us this year.
