We Rise Together! We have heard this statement brought to the forefront of our communities. What this means to us is for each individual to discover where and how you will be a part of this “TOGETHER” project.
"I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!"
— Ephesians 1:17-18 (MSG)
