Facing Giants

“You can’t handle this. It’s time that you admit that your problems are just too big. These problems have taken down better people than you.”

That’s what one voice whispers in your ear as you lie awake, thinking about the challenges in your life.

But what about another voice?
What does God want you to know about your ability to face giants?

Join us in November as we begin the "Facing Giants" sermon series.

  • This October, Galilee invites you to grow in your faith through our Wednesday night Encounter program. We want you to come and share a meal with us. You can bring a friend or your family. We’ll be sitting around tables and talking about the gospel. It’s church, but it isn’t like church on Sunday morning. We’re hoping that through Pastor Jason’s teaching on the Book of John and our personal discussion, you’ll meet with Someone you weren’t expecting.

    Got time for dinner on Wednesdays?
    We’ll meet 6:30-8:00 October 1 to November 12
