“I have come that you may have life abundantly.” John 10:10b

Start off the new program year with a grounding in faith and balanced life perspective. God calls us to live abundantly throughout our life journey. All too often we find ourselves out of breath and off center in this fast paced world. We are confronted with living up to expectations we place on our selves and those set by others.  

What does it mean to live well in Christ?  Together we will discover what it means for you to live as a whole person of God: physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, vocationally, financially and spiritually.  Learn how to make regular use of wellness tools and prayer practices.

Come catch your breath and discover what it means to live as whole people of God.
