Wanna Race?

Wanna race? I can remember as a kid when I would get new shoes, the first thing I wanted to do was race. I felt faster just from the shear presence of the new leather on my feet.

Blessings of Ripple Effects

Each choice we make causes a ripple effect in our lives.
What is the next right choice you will make? Tonight we will hear from a man, a dad, a husband and now leader for Christ who made one of the most life rippling choices of his life. 
Tonight one of our brothers will incorporate his entire family in the teaching and how making the choice on taking an inventory changed his life. Hear from his wife and son along with his own perspective 
We are all one choice away from something. Will it be positive or negative? Join us 6pm Celebrate Recovery @ Fellowship Bible
