Word for the Year

Every year we have a “Word for the Year” for our church family around which our experience of God in the upcoming year finds focus and relevance. Our word for 2015 is “watch”. What might we see God do if we are watchful and alert to His Presence? I would also encourage you to be thinking about and praying for your own personal word for the year. It’s a great spiritual exercise that helps bring God’s Presence into our every day world. What will your word be? … Pastor Steve
