Be That Person … Who Serves With Grace And Gives Life

Living to a higher calling is a critical connection that all of us need to capture. It is this commitment that will take us beyond ordinary to extraordinary.

We get the most joy and make the biggest difference when we use our God-given talents, gifts and abilities to build the church (Ephesians 4:14-16).
