For the words of Scripture to be transformational, they need to be heard and understood as the biblical writers intended them to be. The Bible writers conveyed precise meanings through their words, idioms, sites, names and images used. They assumed their audience would know what they were describing, together with its intended meaning. To more fully appreciate that meaning, a passage’s context needs to be restored in order to (re)discover the transformational impact originally intended by the Holy Spirit.

We will be showing Chonda Pierce's movie, Enough on June 27 at the church. Doors are at 6:30 and the movie starts at 7:30pm.
Chonda Pierce has built her career by being “real” – sharing her heart, talking about difficult issues, and blending it all with humor, insight and self examination. Her vulnerability and wit have made Chonda Pierce the #1 selling female comedian in history (2014 RIAA Lifetime Achievement Award).
“I love your willingness to be transparent and let God give you His words to speak to all of us who have never felt good enough.”
Kathy, Greenville SC
Coming out of the hit Fathom Event and best-selling DVD, Laughing in the Dark, Chonda Pierce continues her relatable journey in a new documentary simply titled Enough. Enough shares a message of great hope and encouragement, with Chonda’s usual quick wit and incomparable story telling weaved throughout. The film propels discussion, outreach and healing so that everyone can begin a new, more fulfilling life journey.
The content of the movie is directed to women, because it comes from a woman’s perspective (Chonda’s). However, the subject matter is applicable to everyone – women, men and even teenagers 14+ might find that it helps them with issues that they are beginning to face at school, home and in their spiritual walk. The film propels discussion, outreach and healing so that everyone can begin a new, more fulfilling life journey. It could be the start of reaching out to one another, becoming a true friend, and connecting to God in a new way or for the very first time!
Discover the answer for completeness, self-acceptance and fulfillment.
