We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God’s ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!

TUESDAY: Prayer and Fasting 7:00AM-7:00PM

We started the journey to planting our church if February 2016 with 100 days of prayer.  The last 40 days we raised the intensity by including fasting along with our prayer.  We seek the fullness of God’s anointing to empower us as we prepare to launch a church for this season.  We invite you to pray with us for a different church, leader, business, school, and you, of course, every week.  Send your prayer request HERE or go to http://empoweredliving.church/connect/prayer-request/

We partner with Courtside Ministries to enable people working in or going in and out of courthouses to experience the love, grace and power of Jesus Christ by inviting His presence through prayer.

FRIDAY: Couples' Date Night Time:TBD

ELC believes that a healthy marriage is the cornerstone to building a strong family, developing successful children, and living an empowered life.  Marriage is one of life’s most essential relationships, requiring intentional measures to safeguard and keep it healthy.  We encourage couples’ (married and dating) to reserve one night a week for a planned date night.


“Insofar as date nights allow couples to focus on their relationship, to share feelings, to engage in romantic activities with one another, and to try new things, date nights may strengthen or rekindle that romantic spark that can be helpful in sustaining the fires of love over the long haul.”
