God has a message for you! Can you hear it?

Samuel heard it during the middle of the night. Mary heard it through an angel. The disciples were hard at work when they heard it. They all heard God’s special message just for them!  Message Received: Hearing God’s Call lets children know that God continues to call all kinds of people—including them! People are called to love God and follow Jesus every day. Those who hear God’s message and respond are forever changed.

For Women…

A "taste of Walking With Purpose." Come away and let God turn your busy schedule into a time of peace and refreshment. Together we will laugh, learn and enjoy the way God fills us when we answer His Call. Walking with Purpose is a nationally recognized scripture study program that has helped over 25,000 women deepen their faith and family through Christ.
