Tired? Anxious? Busy?

In our digital, urban world, life seems more frenetic and noisy than ever. We feel tired, anxious, and fragmented. But what if Jesus offers us another way? What if our busyness is actually undermining our ability to not only follow Jesus but the life he has on offer?

Join us for the next six weeks as we consider how the life of Elijah and the teachings and practices of Jesus invite us to experience deeper intimacy with God and a life of true freedom and contentment.
