Transform Ideas: Life to Flourish will call on the Church to live out the Gospel of life by advocating for the inherent value of all vulnerable people. A variety of experts will look at some of the complex issues that have contributed to the degradation of life and offer practical insights into how Christians can support the whole person, bolstering the value and dignity in all of God's children.
This Transform Ideas St. Cloud forum will take a holistic approach in caring for people at their most vulnerable stages of life, for example; the unborn, the elderly, the disabled, the impoverished, people impacted by childhood trauma and foster children.
We believe God's call is on the Church to create a society where all life will flourish, by caring for all peoples' spiritual, emotional, and physical needs.

A pure, clear opal appears white to the naked eye. Yet, upon closer inspection, it’s apparent the stone actually reflects a rainbow of colors. Like this rare gem, pop artist Sarah Reeves showcases a prism of organic hues through her vibrant music. With a renewed passion for her artistry and an innovative sound that clearly launches the next chapter in her career, Reeves is poised to bring a fresh expression of herself in the form of new music.
Throughout 2018, a forward-thinking marketing approach will see 13 fresh tracks rolled out, song by song, culminating in the debut of Reeves’ first full-length project for Word Entertainment. Like the album release, the sonic backdrop for Reeves’ new material is unconventional, marked by avant-garde production and a kaleidoscope of propulsive beats. Produced by Robert Marvin (Kelly Clarkson, Mat Kearney, Paper Route), Reeves’ new music also boasts collaborations with Ian Keaggy and Josh Hawkins (Super Duper), who helped craft an album that merges her worship roots with her pop sensibilities and deft lyricism.
After initially signing a record deal at 18, Reeves toured heavily for years before coming off the road for an indefinite hiatus to focus on songwriting—her first love. Thinking her career as a recording artist was over, Reeves poured herself into writing songs for others, including Jesus Culture, Kari Jobe and Natalie Grant. Her songs received film and TV placement, and her vocals found their way onto select recordings, including a feature on Kirk Franklin’s BET Awards-nominated track, “My World Needs You,” also featuring Tasha Cobbs and Tamela Mann. In addition, she gradually cultivated a devoted following of more than 100,000 fans on YouTube who discovered her voice through a series of cover songs, garnering her nearly 20 million global views.
Somewhere between the glare of her former artist life and the stark behind-the-scenes respite of a songwriter’s reality, Reeves experienced a beneficial tension that forced her to reexamine her calling and gave her the courage to create fresh, original faire she, in turn, wanted to record for herself.
“My inner artist has been battling with stereotypical artist expectations for years,” Reeves reveals. “I now know who I am and am confident in who God created me to be.”
With its intentional experimentation and pop influence, her new collection reintroduces Reeves as a multi-faceted artist—each song displaying a different aspect of her personality. Although diverse in lyrical content, Reeves’ 13 new cuts strikingly represent the mature, creative force she’s become. The bright, carefree “Something About You” and unabashed worship anthem “Faithful” sit right alongside “Feel The Waters,” a love song written for her husband following a season when their marriage seemed to be falling apart—each track an honest glimpse into a specific area of her personal life.
“This album is super authentic to my journey and experiences over the past few years,” Reeves shares. “I always wanted to make a record like this. Each song is a different expression of me, yet remains sonically thematic. I’m really proud of it.”
Please join us for an awesome night of Worship led by Sarah Reeves!
Calvary sets apart two days to give the opportunity to release even more children from poverty. Compassion Sunday is about more than sponsoring a child...it's about releasing entire families from poverty in Jesus' name! It's a way for us to help fulfill the Great Commission and meet the physical needs of children in poverty, answering God's call to care for the poor.
