Verve Haps

Verve is officially four years old, and we celebrated in style this past weekend!!
  • Our band started each service with "Uprising" by Muse. There ain't no party like a party that starts with Muse.
  • This week's message was all about how what God has done at Verve over the last four years can impact the way Ververs live their lives. One reason why our church has grown is because a ton of volunteers have stepped up and committed their time to God without seeking any fame for themselves. A huge part of following God is giving up our desires for his, and great things like this happen when we lay down our own pride and egos for the sake of leading people closer to God. 
  • On Saturday night we hosted a banquet for several of our out-of-town financial supporters. Because a lot of people we reach are (understandably) skeptical about giving money to a church, Verve relies mostly on churches and people from all over America to help fund our vision. People flew in from all over the country to hang out at Verve on Saturday and celebrate what God has done in four years. It's extremely humbling to have so many people praying for our church and partnering with us.
  • At Verve we don't take ourselves too seriously... so we compiled this look back at some highlights from the last 12 months:
