Redefine spotsylvania is back!

Why Redefine?
Because the world tells us we have no purpose. We are cosmic accidents, the result of time and matter spontaneously erupting into life. There's no purpose to our existence but to eat, drink, and be merry.

But the Bible tells us a different story. God has revealed His plan and purpose for our lives in His word. We have value, purpose, dignity, and worth, because we bear His image. It's time we learn to shout it from the rooftops, share His story with our community, and embrace the life God intended for us.

Our Creator has already defined us. Our Savior has died to reconcile us. Our counselor dwells within us.
Let's learn about it together!
