Join us for Summer Together 2022!
This summer we are excited to be kicking off Summer Together on May 15. Beginning May 15 you'll have the opportunity to Grab a Tag. These tags have different serve opportunities for you and your discipleship groups to do together. Just because it's summer doesn't mean it's time to step back from meeting. We are encouraging each group to meet together once a month for a fun activity.
We believe relationships matter! This summer is a time for connection and serving!
If you are not in a group this is a great time to start!
