Unleashing Hope  \\  Jun 3, 2014

This week’s “Unleashing Hope” topic is “Refusing To Go It Alone”... We weren’t meant to go through life alone. We need others around us, for relationship, encouragement, accountability, friendship… God not only offers us life, but to live this life abundantly! There’s a great adventure in front of us, if we step out in faith with God AND with others. Pastor Ray shares a story that’s a perfect analogy to why coming to church regularly and getting connected and involved helps us get connected, be encouraged and loved, so we can step out and “do life” together!
