Home Health Seminar (Legacy Ministry)

Have you ever wondered what if…What if I need help at home? What if I need health equipment at home? What if my spouse gets sick and it is just more than I can handle by myself at home? More so, what if I get sick and need home healthcare? Please join us Monday, January 13 at 10am and 6:30pm in room B100 to learn how to navigate the home health system. Discover what options you may have for that overwhelming time that you may need help caring for yourself or a loved one, what questions to ask, and who can help you find answers. Kim Caudill, nurse administrator for ARCA, will be our guest speaker. She has been a nurse for 30 years with credentials in psychiatry and oncology, and a certified brain injury specialist.

Life Resource Center

ABOVE ALL by J.D. Greear

In a world that divides over everything, J. D. Greear reminds us that above programs, politics,preferences or any other priorities we may be compelled by, Jesus promised to build His church on the rock of the gospel and that the gospel is the source of the Church’s renewal. We, on the other hand, often prefer to attack each other over second things instead of cooperating on the first thing. As Christians, we need to remember that the gospel comes first, bringing hope and grace, along with instructions for how we should live as representatives of our Savior, who has sent us on a mission to change the world.
