Fall 2018 Programming

This fall, we are offering plenty of opportunities for members and visitors to learn together and take a deeper dive into scripture. These weekday and Sunday morning sessions will allow us to read and reflect on what God has in store for us and how we can apply that in living our best life. Feel free to join us for Dr. Mark’s casual, conversational brunches, or even opt for self-care with our brand-new Wholeness and Wellness study. All are welcome!
