Title: Always Reforming
Tagline: Celebrating 500 Years of Being Made New

Once created, each artist needs to submit their design on either Facebook or Instagram (including the hashtag #onefaithmanyfaces in the post – that will help us track your design).

This year during the teaching time of our large group gatherings on Sunday nights, both the middle school and high school groups are working their way through the gospel of Matthew. Matthew is the first book in the New Testament of the Bible.  As we journey through Matthew’s account of Jesus’s life and ministry, we are discovering what is means to be a disciple of Jesus.  A disciple is someone who learns from and patterns their life based on their teacher, in this case Jesus the Christ.  Because we are limited in what we can discover during our large gatherings on Sunday evenings, Pastor Henry has created a daily devotional plan that will allow you to explore more deeply Matthew’s account of Jesus’s life and ministry.  Each day a text will be sent that will include a brief reading, a reflection question, a key verse, and/or a prayer focus for us to use to help shape and form us spiritually.
