Keep Showing Up: Building Connection with God and People This Week's Episode
This week, Pastor Bobby encourages us from Matthew 20:9-15 and teaches that becoming more starts with showing up. We live in a world where we don’t respond to phone calls, invitations or text messages, but we can be different than everyone else.

He is also an author and host of the podcast "Ignite with Barry Meguiar." His most recent book, Ignite Your Life: Defeat Fear with Effortless Faith, encourages readers to help others grow closer to the Lord through their actions and words. Special music is provided by Jennifer Rockett, a worship leader from Los Angeles, who loves being able to share her passion of singing and uplift others through music. Today, she performs “Raise a Hallelujah" and is accompanied by Dr. Marc Riley and the Hour of Power Orchestra. Then, the Hour of Power Choir, under the direction of Dr. Irene Messoloras, performs “O! What a Beautiful City” and "Rejoice, the Lord Is King." We hope you'll join us for this inspirational service!
