He is Risen

He is Risen Indeed

That a man named Jesus lived and taught love, and that he was publicly executed by the Romans under false charges made by his peers, is historically certain. But what happened next–that he was raised from the dead on the third day–is so amazing that it deserves, at least, to be investigated.. Or, at best,…

FREE PRAYER

We’re excited to be sponsoring a Neighborhood Park Party at Round Rock West Park on Saturday, April 8th. Besides the bouncey house, the free food, live music, fun games and the petting zoo, one of the best parts (IMO) is the FREE PRAYER booth that we will set up on site. Of course, there’s no…
