Monday - 6:30 PM - Mission Viejo

Leaders: Jessica Pekar & Maria Lankford

Hi God (It’s Me Again) is for those moments when we need to stop, be still, and remember who God is. We know we should go to God amidst the craziness, but how can we find the time? And once we get with him, what do we even say? In this 60-day devotional, Pastor Nicole Crank empowers readers with biblical affirmation, reminding them that God is in control of their chaos and has purpose in their pain. Sharing short and simple words of encouragement, she meets readers in the everyday and reminds them of the importance of spending quality time with God. We will gather on a weekly basis to talk about the devotional, spend time praying over each other, and connect with God's Word.
