Night to Shine Prom

Shining in 2016 
Every major win in your life will be preceded by a focused time of prayer. I think about Moses on the mountain top praying for his men fighting in the valley. As long as he kept his hands raised in prayer, there was major victory as his men fought the battle. I think about Joshua praying for the sun to stop in the middle of the sky, and it did. The sun stood still in one of the boldest prayers recorded. I want to encourage you to kick off 2016 in prayer and fasting.

We are staring a week of prayer and fasting on January 18th that will change the future of our church and your life. It's time for 2016 to be a year that we Shine brighter than ever before. I want to encourage you to come on Sunday and be a part of a church that is Shining in a world of darkness.

We are also on the verge of what I believe will be our two biggest outreaches ever: 1) Night to Shine, a prom for students with special needs, and 2) Easter at the Park 2016. We are going to experience amazing miracles of salvation, healing, and touching the lives of people in our community. I believe that God also wants to teach us to pray really big prayers and learn to trust Him in our lives. I can't wait to see you and it is such a privilege to serve as your pastor!

Much Love,

Week of Prayer & Fasting


Week of Prayer and Fasting

As the new year begins, we're asking everyone who is part of Discovery to fast in some way. Fasting is a spiritual discipline that Jesus modeled for us in the Bible. What is a fast? How do I fast? Here's the info.
