our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God

our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves

our hope is that the best is yet to come

Join us this Sunday as we continue our DEEPER series! P. Sam will deliver a message entitled:

“Deeper In Prayer” based on Jeremiah 29:10-14; Matthew 6:5-13

We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.

EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.

We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.

We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.

EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.

We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.

We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.

EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.

Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.

We’ll see you this Sunday!


“Deeper In Prayer”

Prayer is not about simply going to God whenever we need something. Prayer is our primary way of seeking God’s heart. The promise of prayer is that God can and will be found through it. We shouldn’t pray just for show. The health and quality of our prayer life will be based on how much we pray in “the secret place”. We don’t need to use fancy words, or long and lofty prayers to connect with God. We just need to be intentional and sincere. Most of us feel detached from God because we have not developed the discipline of daily prayer. In this sermon, we will examine what it looks like to have a prayer life that connects us deeply with the Father in heaven who sees us and knows us.
