Join us for our sermon series: BEYOND LIMITS

“Blessed is the one who expects nothing, for they shall never be disappointed.” It’s a Proverb that many live by. Self-imposed limitations that pull us back, hold us down and put a limit on what is achievable. The Bible tells us that “with God, nothing is impossible.’ There is no limit to his love, his grace or his forgiveness. No limit to the possibilities that exist for what he can do through his people to bless the world. Join us as God continues to push us to Reimagine, Recommit, Reengage and Rebuild beyond our self-imposed limits towards the Vision he has given us as his people. Join us as we continue to live Beyond Limits.

Today's verse & thought to ponder ...

31

JAN

MATTHEW 17:5-8

He was still speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified. But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.
