Baptism - September 15th
We are overjoyed to announce another baptism in our Element community! Please join us after the gathering to witness and celebrate these beautiful decisions to receive Christ. If you or your kiddos are ready for baptism, please see Pastor Benjamin or Pastor Melody!

Women’s Retreat is coming up! Friday night Sept 27 – Sunday morning Sept 29. We have booked a beautiful house in Kissimmee.

Here's the Psalm in my heart today, church. May we meditate on it together, and hear the voice of a Father who calls us Beloved. I'll see you Sunday.

Psalm 18:16-24, MSG

But me he caught—reached all the way
    from sky to sea; he pulled me out
Of that ocean of hate, that enemy chaos,
    the void in which I was drowning.
They hit me when I was down,
    but God stuck by me.
He stood me up on a wide-open field;
    I stood there saved—surprised to be loved!

God made my life complete
    when I placed all the pieces before him.
When I got my act together,
    he gave me a fresh start.
Now I’m alert to God’s ways;
    I don’t take God for granted.
Every day I review the ways he works;
    I try not to miss a trick.
I feel put back together,
    and I’m watching my step.
God rewrote the text of my life
    when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes.
