“I’m SO busy.”

Has this become your mantra? You’re not alone. In today’s fast-paced culture “BUSY” has become a competitive sport. Somehow, we’ve come to believe that being busy is non-negotiable and that it defines our worth. Thankfully, God doesn’t define our value based on our level of productivity.

During the six-ish weeks leading up to Easter (Lent), Christians have historically given something up as a means of focusing deeply on God. What if we thought less about “giving something up” and more about “making room” for the things that are most important in our lives? We invite you to explore this with us and join us for our new worship series.

Busy: Reconnecting with an Unhurried God begins Ash Wednesday, March 6th, with a 6 pm worship service and concludes on Easter Sunday, April 21st.

Hurricane Harvey Response Web Image.png

Its time to get back to Victoria and helping put their lives back together. We have our response trailer and we have the tools loaded. Now we need boots on the ground. I am announcing two scheduled trips that you can volunteer for. The only requirement that you must have is the RioConference training called Safe Gatherings. It is mandated by the conference. Jim Balthazar and I are now certified all the way through the third tier of the process of TRUSTed. Every team requires a minimum of 2 of TRUSTed. Other team members are only required to be background checked and completion of the online training under Safe Gatherings. So with that here are the opportunities:

February 18-22, 2019

You can complete training/background check by going to the RioTexas Conference web page at the following link: https://safegatherings.com

As we have done in the past, you can sign up for less than the full deployment. No particular skills required. :)

Email, or call to join.
