Band: Presence Worship
ThemeRESILIENT. In a world growing rampant with sin and disobedience, we find ourselves pushed and pressed into difficult situations on the daily. If we are honest, these situations are not going to dissolve. In fact, there is great reason to believe they will become increasingly more difficult. Constant warfare surrounds you, alluring you to put your hope into false pleasures and idols that will not satisfy. In the book of Daniel, we encounter the timeless display of individuals demonstrating resilient character, uncompromisable faith, and boldness to remain true to a God who continues to provide faithfully for his people in the midst of extreme challenges. This year’s theme will help discover the balance of remaining loyal to King Jesus, while navigating the unavoidable and inevitable difficult pathways that we find ourselves on.
