Verse of the Week


So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female,for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

-Galatians 3.26-29

      Prayer Square


      • Pray that this season of Lent would be a humbling and refreshing time for everyone, that we would each find time to reflect and do some "spiritual spring cleaning."

      • Pray that our campus would open up to God's word and influence. Pray that His love would be tangibly felt in every corner.

      Verse of the Week


      Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations. He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his teaching the islands will put their hope.

      -Isaiah 42:1-4
