Ways to Connect

We create opportunities throughout the year for adults to learn, socialize, deepen personal faith, and give back to the community. Check out events posts, or sign up for emails to discover upcoming dates.

Discovering new books and films, sharing food and fellowship, growing spiritually, learning from the experts, promoting social change…together.
