Are there steps you need to take right now? We encourage you to take action and follow the leading of the Lord according to His Word, by His Spirit, and through the counsel of brothers and sisters in the body of Christ. Please don't hesitate to ask for prayer or speak to the Elders, Deacons, Staff, or other ministry leaders an any numbers of these topics. As one local family of the body of Christ, we want to build one another up in love, spur one another on to love and good works, and encourage one another to be obedient to our Father in heaven. It is with this mindset, that we bring before you several opportunities and possible "next-steps". As you explore the list below, entrust yourself to the Lord and prayerfully consider if any of these resonate with how He is guiding and directing you as you act in obedient faith.
