From Ashes to Glory:  A Lenten Reflection

Featuring Dan Schutte


Lenten/Easter Schedule


Have you heard about Alpha but not attended yet?  Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.  Each session includes a meal, a video, and small group discussion.   This is the perfect opportunity to invite someone you know to this course which will enrich their faith life, allow them to develop a personal relationship with Jesus and perhaps bring someone back to church.  Watch here for registration information for our next course!
