40 Days of Faith begins Sunday, February 18
The season of Lent (the 6 weeks before Easter) is historically a time in which followers of Jesus engage in spiritual disciplines like fasting, prayer, and a renewed attention to the Bible. This year, we're focusing on the them "New Creation." Jesus laid out a new vision for humanity in what is called the Sermon on the Mount. It's a road map for a new way of life that can bring down walls and help us come fully alive. Please make sure to join us for an exciting kickoff to "40 Days of Faith."
The River heads to India!
