Ministry March schedule
With the hope of spring on the horizon, we stand in anticipation of all the blessings of a new season. Our hearts long to embrace the change that lies ahead, thus inviting us forward with new hope and vigor. It is here during the month of March that our young people are encouraged to experience this invitation of newness and know the joy that a community gathered in the name of Christ can bring.

In the Spirit of hope,
