Daily Disciples

Are you eager to grow in relationship with Jesus and others?  Are you yearning for authentic intergenerational fellowship for all ages?  Join Pastors Ted and Sandra Deer as they host a team of different presenters each day in an exciting and interactive meeting every morning.  You will learn practical principles in how to live daily as a disciple of Jesus.  There will be worship time, sharing time, lesson time, and a daily challenge to put to use what you learn!  Our time together will be reminiscent of the early Christian Church when truly it was found to be ‘Stronger Together’!
