True Belonging: Home Edition

If there’s one place we all should feel like we belong, it’s home, right? But feeling great about our home life doesn’t always come easily.

The Audacity of Jesus – Fall Life Groups

The teachings of Jesus, the miracles he performed and his impeccable character are enough to set him apart.

We’d like…
