Coming soon! TGIF: where everyone knows your name! TGIF deepens our connections to others, ourselves, and God through small group interaction (8 – 12 people). We meet four times. The first two meetings focus on sharing our life experiences and faith journey. In the last two meetings, we look at our lives through the lens of Extravagant Welcome, expressed in Luke 15. Our goal is to build a sense of community, so it is important for each person to be at each meeting.
Saturdays, May 12, 19, 26 and June 2nd, 10:30-noon or 3-4:30pm.
