Event: Lenten Retreat “Your Heart, Jesus’ Kindness, and Easter Hope”

Presenters Mary Kay and Mike Stebbins come from a place of pain and brokenness. Through their own struggles, they are proof that broken lives can become joy-filled, even in the midst of suffering, through the love of Jesus and the grace of God, and they will help us find this in our own lives. Registration is encouraged but not required.

Event: Unbound Freedom in Christ Conference
Jesus brought salvation and liberation by dying for us and setting us free from bondage. But sometimes we don’t fully experience freedom, and we continue to feel anxious, afraid, or hopeless. The Unbound Freedom in Christ Conference will help you respond to the good news of the gospel and apply truth to your life using Five Keys: Repentance and Faith, Forgiveness, Renunciation, Authority, and The Father’s Blessing. Take hold of the freedom Christ won for you!
