Malachi Track // Leaders: Jonathan and Becky Pickett
The Malachi track is geared toward the 50+ age group. The teaching is taken from Malachi 4:5-6, “See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.” God has a unique plan for every season of life. Learn how you can prepare your heart to disciple the next generation. Join us as we “mobilize the mature,” because this is not a time to retire, but to REFIRE!
