Can you imagine that there is something we can actually do that God promises will allow us to “test and approve” (the idea is to fully and completely experience) how good, pleasing, and perfect His will is for our lives? Think about that! Whoa! God wants you to experience His good and pleasing will in your marriage, your job, and your future. He even wants you to experience His perfect will in a difficult situation as you learn to wait, learn, and see God’s wisdom and grace sustain you. All that to say: God wants to give you the very best. I didn’t say the easiest, and don’t confuse “the best” with how you define it. But the Creator of the universe knows your name, sees your heart, knows your pain, and longs to pour out His good, acceptable, and perfect will into every area of your life and relationships.

Prayer Join us for pre-service prayer in the breakout room 45 minutes before the start of service. We would like to pray for you and your concerns. Please do not hesitate to ask someone to pray with you at the front of the auditorium after the worship service. You can also get prayer request cards at the information table and fill out the prayer cards to make your request known. You can drop them in the offering bag or you can email
