Better Together Begins February 18
Our world feels more divided than ever. We’re convinced others are against us at times. What if we really are better together? What if what we fear in the other is a wakeup call to make space for important conversations? This Lent, join us as we explore what it means to be a good neighbor when it comes to race, gender, politics, generational differences and loving the people of Marysville, Washington. Every Sunday at 8:30, 9:45 & 11:00, February 18 - March 18.
Enjoy a home cooked dinner and connect with some new friends on Wednesday nights this spring! Dinner at 5:30 and groups for all ages start at 6:30pm. Starts February 14.
