A CONTAGIOUS HOPE

A PLACE OF BELONGING... Even IN A PANDEMIC

The coronavirus has changed the way we do life together. Rather than retreat, we have been learning to love contagiously as an adaptive, creative community. In fact, God had prepared us “for such a time of this.” (Esther 4:14) 

This page will be updated on a regular basis to share hope-filled stories from across our community.
