It’s time to ARISE! In Biblical times, names were given with intentional meaning, often saying something about that person’s character or their situation.
For example, King David’s name means “beloved”, and he was known as the man after God’s own heart.
Abram and Sarai pulled up stakes and left home, travelling to a land they’d never seen before. God changed their names when He made a covenant concerning their future.
God called Jacob to be Israel. Jesus gave Simon the name Peter. After his conversion Saul was called Paul.
For many years our church’s name has been tied to our past. Named for a previous location in a different time.
Today we are excited to take a name that represents the work God is calling US to NOW. We are ready to ARISE!
