Refresh: Vision & Vigor for the New Year

January 7 – March 4, 2018

The Messages

#1 January 7: Just Do It–The First Step to Refresh
Something amazing happens when we get things done. Something crippling happens when we don’t. As the year begins, we want to refresh the stuck points and get going. This message reveals God’s starting point to all refreshing moves. (Joshua 24:14-15). Listen here.

#2 January 14: Jesus

#3 January 21: Money
Money is a useful thing. You can do a lot with it, and the more you have, the more you can do. But it can also destroy us. This message focuses on two decisions that will refresh and sustain our whole experience with money. (1 Timothy 6:6-10) Listen here.

#4 January 28: Health

All around us are hurting people in need of help. All around us are lost people in need of a Savior. This message refreshes our mission to bring both to those who want them. (Luke 10:30-37)
