In what may be remembered as the greatest year of isolation our society has ever seen, God gives us the answers we seek as to how and why we should live in community with others. God created us for connection – not only an intimate connection with Him, but with others as well. Through Scripture we will understand how to Reconnect towards meaningful relationships in our lives.

April 18 – Reconnect by Re-engaging with intentionality.

April 25 – Reconnect by Removing bad habits and relationships.

May 2 – Reconnect by Rekindling through purposeful love.

May 9 – Reconnect by Refreshing and avoiding burnout.
