Life Group hosted by Craig & Allison Spears
May 22 @ 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Location: Craig & Allison’s home.

Brief Description of Group: Will have a focus toward the supernatural. Not just healing, raising the dead or casting demons like most people think of when they hear the word supernatural but everyday life in the kingdom. Those things are a part of it to be sure but there is so much more. How do we position our hearts and lives for more? What is the more? Do we miss the fullness of what is possible because we’ve become so familiar with “how things have always been done?” Come be a part of a small group, a family and community that wants to explore those questions and more. We want to see what God’s word has to say about it and hear His voice on the subject.

Other: All are welcome. Children are welcome but no childcare will be provided.
