Stories of Others Living Deeply

At Cedar Springs, we see you – and we’re with you. We know what it’s like to be overwhelmed with the hurriedness of life. We also understand the feeling deep inside you for something deeper than you’re settling for now. In fact, we believe God created us for those deeper things, and we want to help you discover them.

Below are a series of stories from people right here at Cedar Springs. Some come from great experiences while others were walking through hard times. The unifying thread through all of them is a life living deeply in pursuit of Jesus.
