Power Your Spirit at PazNaz this Spring!

Returning on Wednesday, April 30, with a *NEW START TIME* at 6:30 pm

A Message from Keegan Lenker, Pastor of Intergenerational Discipleship

The hope of PazNaz is that people experience God’s transforming power. This power comes through connecting with others who are seeking to be discovered and transformed by God. Some people are new, and will be searching to learn more. Others are struggling, and will need a relationship to remind them that there is still hope. And still others come because it serves as a reminder to them of the importance of sharing life together. This Spring, classes are available to further your connection with the Body of Christ, where stories of transformation are made possible.

Wednesday Night Dinners are back!

Dinner will be served in Gilmore Hall each week from 5:30 - 6:15 pm. All adult menu selections are Daniel Plan approved (if you are following along with Women's Ministries) and cost $6.
