Leadership and Discipleship are Inseparable

If you think back just 9 weeks ago, we were kicking off an exciting new trimester with 6 Community Groups... and we haven't slowed down since then! We've been growing together in community; worshiping, studying, praying, and learning to share our lives together as we follow Christ.

Responding to Hurricane Sandy

As we think about the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. We need to return to Jesus' words:

On Sunday mornings, it makes us so happy to see kids playing and laughing and mingling around with the adults.

Prayer System

For our sixth week of our systems blog series, we're taking a look at our Prayer System.

Worship Arts

Welcome to the fifth installment of our blog series exploring the systems that work behind the scenes at Six:Eight! This week we'll be looking in-depth at a system that is very tightly connected to the Impressions system - Worship Arts.
