S.H.A.P.E. Daily Challenge

We invite you for the next 25 days to join in a S.H.A.P.E. Daily Challenge.  Each day is a scripturally-based task that will take only a few moments to complete. These tasks have been skillfully written by our own Pastor Tony Arnold, and their goal is to create a habit of daily, purposeful time spent with Christ.  We desire for each of you to be strengthened and empowered to take ownership of your own faith journey.  We believe as you spend purposeful time drawing closer to Christ, that he will make His plans and His shape for you even more evident.  You can find the daily challenges below and on our Christ Church app.
