“VISIONS & DREAMS” Sermon Series with Pastor Steve
October 26 – November 23 On the day the church was born, the Spirit came like a rush of wind. Fire swept over the people. Peter quoted the prophet Joel, who had spoken of that day saying “your young shall see visions, and your old shall dream dreams.”

Does God still grant us visions and dreams? What are yours? Exploring through the lens of the past, present, and future, Pastor Steve will lead us on a journey in response to our Dream Gatherings, the listening sessions we held this summer.
