Daily Reminders

“Continue to Pray”

Do you want to strengthen your relationship with God in 2023? In this New Year series, Pastor Kellen reveals the importance of developing daily habits and routines that cultivate spiritual formation. We can gain health in our daily walks with God by understanding what the Bible says about growing in our lives with Jesus.

“Reflecting back on the past year and looking ahead to 2023, I have chosen to share a photograph from each month of 2022. For me, my pictures can spark a fond memory, be a meditative moment or remind me to continue that experience in the new year. I love sharing scripture with my photos and I pray this collection will touch your spirit.” – Kim Van Oss
