For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:14 (ESV)

Last night we had our first or four Nights of Glory this year. It was amazing! The focus was (and will continue to be) on God’s glory being made know in Athens and beyond, through His people becoming glory carriers to those around us (2 Corinthians 3:18). We believe this is a theme on the Father’s heart right now. Please join us in crying out for the knowledge of His glory to be made known in your world, in your family, church and across our city! Of course, that starts with you taking the time to gaze, reflect, marinate on His glory!

Here are some ways you can join up and pray with others and for others in this month and beyond….

Please join us for a great morning with other faith filled followers of Jesus.
