SUNDAY SERVICE TIMES
9AM | 11AM | 6PM
SUNDAY JULY 21 – The Cycle Of Achievement
We tend to fall into cycles — repeating the same patterns over and over, all while expecting different results. But it doesn't have to stay this way. Awareness and understanding can lead to new patterns that create healthier dynamics in every area of our lives. Starting this week, will examine some common patterns we fall into, and challenge us to break the cycles that keep us from true and lasting change.
HouseBoats (High School Ministry)
New Bullard's Bar Reservoir | July 29 - August 2
