Level Up - Brian & Jennifer Marlatt

We meet the fourth Sunday of each month directly after church until 3 pm at the Marlatt home: 500 Larson Drive Huxley.  Childcare and lunch are provided.

Our desire is to live transformed lives by the Word of God, to NOT ONLY be hearers of the Word of God but DOERS (James 1:22).  We are driven to LEVEL-UP by putting on the FULL armor of God, obtaining the tools and weapons needed through the Word to fight off the enemy, & take back territory for the kingdom of God.  Iron sharpens iron, so come join us for food, fellowship, prayer, and learning to live transformed lives worthy of the calling we have received!
