abide conference

October 24th & 25th

learning to abide

Now more than ever before we need the presence of God in our lives! He fills us, comforts us, sustains us, guides us, empowers us, and more. Jesus gives us the key to receiving all of this. He says to ‘ABIDE’ in Him. Abiding is more than a casual conversation or request. It means to remain, or stay, with Him. This conference will lead you into a deeper, more satisfying relationship with Jesus as we learn how to have a lifestyle of abiding!
