In March 2021, two churches joined together to form Awaken Church. "We burned the ships," Pastor Dean Yoder says. Legally those two former churches no longer exist, he says in this celebratory message marking the one year anniversary of the church. God is preparing the church for new things, transforming it. "What God wants to do won't fit in our old containers," he says, "Forget the former things." God is doing a new thing he says pointing to God's words to His people in Isaiah 43.
