Renewing Ourselves and Rebuilding Our Church

What would you give to go on a life-changing adventure?

 How much time would you be willing to invest? How much money would you pay?

What if we told you it would take three minutes a day and would cost you nothing (but time)? Over the next four months, we’re going to spend three minutes every day focusing on two simple habits that have the potential to radically change lives.

Three minutes. Two habits. Once a day.

Are you ready?

A Daily Practice for Ourselves


Practice two minutes of silence.


Meditate on the Fruit of the Spirit
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
- Galatians 5:22-23


Pray for someone who doesn't know Jesus.
