Hot Topics in the Tabernacle, Mental Health & Suicide, January 29th, Making Visitors Feel Welcome, January 26th, Disabilities, April 2nd

This year, we hope to encourage an environment of openness and healthy discussion with a few days dedicated to topics that need to be addressed both in ministry and the church. These topics include Mental Health & Suicide; New Commers (Church Reflection of Your Community); and Disabilities.

Each Saturday will include a speaker or two dedicated to their topic of expertise. The day will begin at 9 am and finish at 3 pm. Each Saturday, we hope to have in-person and online options. However, if we go back into lockdown, we will move to only an online option. Lunch is provided in the price if participating on campus.
