Next: From Here to There

Finding God's "Next" For Your Life

5-Week Church-Wide Initiative

January 23 - February 21

When was the last time you asked God, "What's next?" We all have a "next" that we are searching for. The question is, are we searching for God's "next?" God's plans for us are always better than our own plans and no matter who or where you are, God has a "next" for you. NEXT is about celebrating where we've been and looking forward with great anticipation to where God wants to lead us. Through a sermon series, small groups, devotionals and other offerings, we will spend time discussing and discovering why God has led each of us to where we are. We will all be reminded that God has more for us than just “here" - he wants to take us "there."  In your life and in your walk with God, the best is yet to come, so get ready for what is NEXT!
