Resources from Worship
Looking forward into the new year can be a source of hope, anxiety, or a mix of both. As you experience these emotions, we encourage you to take them before God in prayer; and reach out to us if you would like someone to join you in prayer. If you shared our a prayer request during the live stream this morning, we've forwarded them on to our prayer team, who will be fervently praying for you this week. If you have something you'd like prayer for and haven't yet shared it, send it to the prayer team at
