We are in the second year of our theme of "Building on the Rock" that focuses on resourcing and engaging the local church community. We gather as one body to share and equip our church communities through resources, information, trainings, and fellowship. Come to listen, to learn, to explore and to experience the Word of God as revealed in the Body of Christ in our communities and our world. Come, that we might faithfully respond as Christ's future church.
