Sharing Life Together

Vines grow up, vines grow deep, vines grow wide. Vines grow in ways that get tangled up with one another until its hard to distinguish where one ends and another begins. We, too, seek to grow as we pour ourselves out for God, for each other, and for this city that we have been planted in. Our life together models this rhythm, with opportunities to experience this way of life in Jesus.
