Embrace is located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and was recognized as one of the fastest growing churches in the United States by Outreach magazine in September 2013.  The worship band at this year's Dakotas Annual Conference Session is led by Aubrey Bohl.  The seven member crew sang, danced and played to create a festive worship. 

"Our god is just waiting to show us even a glimpse of what he can do in and through our lives,” Adam Weber, lead pastor at Embrace shared during the opening worship message. 

Adam encouraged all to do more than they ever imagine and place our hope in God.  “ I so often get caught up in everyday life.  I am guilty like so many of us of not relying or believing on our amazing God.”

“Build Our Kingdom Here,” “ Lord I Need You,” “Oceans” were all part of the opening worship service on Thursday, June 5, 2014 led by Embrace.  Check out a compete play list of the songs at Annual Conference 2014.

Haiti Solar Oven Partners made bread for communion.  The bread was made by the team that makes, ships, and distibutes the solar ovens.  Several of the Haiti Solar Oven partners were present to serve communion.
