About Our Theme: Momentum

Vector and thrust. By definition, to have momentum, we need direction and some oomph to move us down that path—vector and thrust. So easily can we lose our focus and get off track. Often we understand where we need to head but have little impetus to actually GO and DO. Our time together will inform us and energize us with ideas and tips to equip us for the journey ahead—all firmly anchored in Scripture.
