Epiphany Series: Power Rising: Make Us a People Ready

2017—a year we are ready to put behind us—is over. In 2018, there is a need, an urgency, for us to be a people equipped and empowered to be the Church, God’s powerful, breathed-into presence in the world. How does that happen? What does it mean to be ‘ready’? Our Sunday series on “Power Rising” will explore this topic.
