Foundations and Horizons

6–9 October 2020 (Tue–Fri)

As we adjust to life in and (hopefully) beyond Covid, we invite you to join us in examining our foundations for living and where we look for a hopeful future.  These are important for all of us, and God has spoken and is speaking to us.  Join us to listen and learn together, and to be prepared and empowered to enter the future with confident hope and some practical strategies.

A very refreshing and enjoyable weekend.
