A Note from Pastor Phil:
Thank you for taking the time to consider participating in our NextSteps initiative. God’s desire for each one of us as Christians is that we could be on a lifelong journey to become more like Jesus. Just as in any journey, we need a map and trusted guides to help us along the way. The reality is we all are a work in progress and none of us will “arrive” this side of eternity. We all need the constant grace and power of the Holy Spirit to become more like Jesus.
Through NextSteps you will have an opportunity to assess your spiritual health and work with a trusted guide to customize a plan for growth. You will also have the opportunity to be part of a cohort of peers for the purpose of sharing the journey together. I am looking forward to all that god is going to do through NextSteps. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance. I hope you will register today!
