Many people seek an over-the-top ‘conversion experience’ in their lives of faith. They’ve read about blinding lights and the booming voice of God in Scripture, they’ve heard about God’s miraculous works in history, they may even know someone who has experienced an incredible healing or life change. But, the truth of the matter is WOW conversions are NOT the way God usually works. Most of us will have many “little conversions” over the long journey of our lives. In these we experience insight, grace, healing, and inspiration over and over again as we grow in the midst of our trials, challenges, and mistakes. Each week’s sermon will focus on the conversion experiences of a different Biblical character and what we can learn about God’s work of converting us in our own daily lives. Join us for this 6 week journey!
