21 Days of Deeper Prayer

During the month of September, we are calling our church to 21 days of prayer. We are praying for the presence of God to be over Kalamazoo and our surrounding areas as we step into a new school year.We will be starting the book, “21 Days of Deeper Prayer” to guide us in our prayer time.

Encounter Night

Encounter Night is happening again! We don’t want you to miss this night of worship and prayer. It’s going to be powerful and it’ll be the perfect way to end our 21 Days of deeper prayer.

Next Gen

We are looking to expand and grow our teams with people of all ages and walks of life. Even if you doubt whether serving on the Next Gen team is a fit, we would encourage you to fill out a serve card and Pastor Carissa will reach out and begin the conversation of helping you find your fit on the Next Gen Team. You taking one simple step could make your name a name to remember on the hearts of our next generation – a generation that we are raising up to be firm in their foundation in Christ and their unique callings. A generation that we care for and believe in. A generation worth changing our culture for.

Current Series:

Plot twist

The most simple definition of a “plot twist” is an unexpected development. It’s a tactic used in literature and film to introduce a change in a storyline that is unexpected and unforeseen. This can also be a way to describe the life of a man we know as Samson. This man who’s birth was foretold by an angel had a life and a calling laid out for him to live. But because of his own desires and ego, what was to be a life of a Godly direction became of life full of “plot twists.” Join us this fall as we kick off the school year focusing on the person, the story, and the reputation of Samson.


Family Prayer Training

On Saturday, October 22 from 10am-12pm (with a lunch provided) the Prayer Team and Next Gen Ministries are joining together to provide our families with a one-day interactive family prayer training. All families with children ages 3-14 are encouraged to attend as they will spend the morning exploring different ways to pray and how to incorporate prayer into the spiritual life of the family – together. This interactive prayer training is one that our families will not want to miss!

This training will incorporate scripture, neuroscience, and key concepts from various best-selling authors such as James Cleary (Atomic Habits) and Charles Duhigg (The Power of Habit, and Smarter, Faster, and Better) to build strategic tools that will help you make the most of every opportunity to reach your full potential.
