Sunday gatherings are great but the real magic happens in kitchens, living rooms and backyard campfires. We become friends, ask new questions, laugh, get curious and realize we're becoming more like Jesus.
Learning circles gather during Lent. Late February to early April. Each one has a theme. Pick one you like and show up! Message the facilitator with any questions.
Childcare is available upon request.
