We’re a community of smaller communities.
Have you felt the culture shift lately at Overflow? It’s pretty amazing how God’s been moving here, and you’ve been responding with greater love for others, greater desire to be together, and creating greater impact when we are together! Well done, Overflow, you’ve moved us from Sunday church to beingthe church. And life transformation is happening!
