In January, the staff met to reflect and plan for 2021. As we listed the many hardships from 2020, it was obvious the struggle is still very real. Out of that retreat, we felt led to provide a space to help heal, grow, and hope, beyond 2020. Three primary topics stood out to us: loss, anxiety, and rest.
We've arranged for professional and experienced leaders to minister through the instruction and discussions on those topics. These virtual seminars, are designed as individual sessions, but attending them all is welcomed.
Our hearts are to help meet, and address, some issues still prevalent today.
Each session begin at 6:00pm on Zoom.
