Announcements – April 23-April 29

Worship

  • Love Can – Join us as we partner with over 30 other churches in our city for our 4-week series, Love Can. In this series, you’ll discover how love can define us, unbind us, break down walls and how love can do anything. Help us get the word out by stopping by the booth in the corridor to pickup your car window marker or by visiting the Love Can Experience at Westroads Mall near the upstairs entrance to Von Maur.

Grow

  • Peak Challenge – is an annual opportunity for men, their sons, fathers and brothers to get away from the everyday routines of life and experience all that God has for them in the wild setting of the Colorado Rockies. This is not a ‘retreat’ but rather an advance of men who seek to experience God in a way that will resonate deep within their souls. Men and young me are challenged physically while hiking 14,000 foot peaks, biking, trail running and white-water rafting. More importantly, men are challenged spiritually to engage in the battle like never before as they see what is at stake. The 2017 Peak Challenge dates are August 3-7. Spots are limited, please register at peakchallenge.net today.
