During this Lenten season, we meditate on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We want to draw closer to Christ in our understanding of what He did for us because of His great love for us. We believe it is important to become fully immersed in His story and we hope to give everyone, from kids to adults, the opportunity to engage in discovering Christ.
Below is a listing of all our events and services for April 8-16, 2017. All of them are free and we would love for you to join us in the celebration!
