      Just Do It! - James 1:22 tells us that we shouldn't deceive ourselves by merely listening to God's Word. Instead we must live out what we hear. Each week, we will spend time deeply listening to God's Word and asking the Holy Spirit to help us understand how to respond to what we hear. We will then resolve to apply the word to our daily lives and encourage one another to be obedient to all that Christ commands.

"By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples."
