Bill will share his inspirational testimony of overcoming physical challenges and using his experiences & perseverance to champion for others with disabilities. He’ll tell us how God called him to his new purpose and put a dream in his heart that is now becoming a reality!

Registration is required. Zoom link will be sent in a confirmation email.
While this event's focus is toward men, all are welcome to learn more about the context and join if interested.

At some time in our lives, most of us have prayed for or hoped for a miracle. But when miracles occur, did you know that we have a role to play?
This Lent and Easter, find out how to use your God-given gifts and talents for God’s glory. Get ready to be made for a miracle!

CORE DEVELOPMENT BEGINS WITH OUR SOUL CENTERED IN GOD.
FROM THAT CENTER WE DEVELOP SPIRITUAL PRACTICES THAT
LEAD TO A VITAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, OTHERS AND
OURSELVES. THESE CORE PRACTICES INCLUDE VARYING ELEMENTS
OF OUR DISCIPLESHIP PROCESS: CONNECT, GROW, SERVE AND
PRAYER. PLEASE CONSIDER HOW YOU CAN BE ON TARGET FOR A
BREAKTHROUGH YEAR FOR FORMING A GENUINE FAITH AND EMBRACING ALL THAT GOD HAS FOR US AND THE NEW THING SPRINGING FORTH!

We encourage all at Sugar River to be part of at least one Core Development class or event per year, so email us for more information and to sign up today.

Just a friendly reminder about at the Drive Through Event this Sunday February 14th from 11am-Noon. Valentine's Day is great time to share the love and we'd LOVE to see YOU!
