Elijah: Stationed to Serve
13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
As humans, we we go to great lengths to feel fulfilled. But even when we are disappointed with our treasures, we are unfazed. We simply set out a plan for the next conquest. However, in John 4, Jesus talks to a woman about how new conquests will never quench her thirst. Please join our guest speaker, Chaplain Rob Wills, as he dives into the book of John to discover what lengths Jesus goes to satisfy us with what we truly need.
Elijah: How God Provides
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.” (John 15:18+19)
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to live like Him, and not the world. However, the pressure to follow the crowd often distracts us from our true calling. Join Pastor Kevin as he continues his journey through the life of Elijah, and uncovers keys to staying strong in our faith when we face severe opposition.

“Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly into heaven, without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Let us see to it that the devil will hold a thanksgiving service in hell, when he gets the news of our departure from the field of battle.” (C.T. Studd)
