Time to seek God’s presence in prayer.
W – Worship
A time to worship God together
E – Encounter
People sharing testimonies of encounters with God!
L – Listen
A ten minute message (we’re going to be journing through the book of Haggai together!)
L – Live
And space to examine our lives and reflect on how we are to live in the light of God’s Word
Join us as we seek to dwell in God’s presence and promises together!
