March 2011 marks one year since re:surgence embarked on a shift that saw us holding  more regular series of gatherings. The heart was to cultivate a passion and devotion for God that is lived out every day. The hope was to have one night opportunities for those of all ages and denominations to engage in worship, receive from anointed teachers, receive personal ministry, and build community with others of like heart. And over the past year we have seen all these things and more.

Now we are asking God for continual increase and straining forward to see His fresh strategies for our community. Join us on Thursday, March 10, 2011 for prayer as we press into God for new direction and praise Him for what he has done over the past year.
