Second Chance

September 11, 2013 By: David Haasis

How often have you thought you would like a "second chance" at something? Maybe you wanted another try with an aspect of a relationship with loved ones, or maybe a do-over on a test, interview, or sporting event. Life seems to have a way of producing this desire, and many times we don't get a chance to redo anything di

I Will Follow

June 7, 2013 By: David Haasis

  Many times the simplest concepts are the most profound.

Strong God

God is Able

Here For You

January 22, 2013 By: David Haasis

  "Here For You" is a song that calls us to worship and helps us understand why we gather together. It's a great song for drawing our heart's focus to God. Since the story video already has some great insights into what inspired the writing of the song by a couple of it's authors, Matt Redman and Matt Maher, I'm
