WRITE IT DOWN JOURNAL
Do you want to grow in your ability to experience God at work in your life? The habit of writing down notes through journaling is a great way to slow down and keep track of what you're learning and observing. We created a simple journal with examples of ways to take notes (Sunday worship notes, daily reflection, prayer requests, and more).
Hard copies are available for a suggested donation at the Next Steps Area in our concourse, or you can access the digital version to print out on your own.
