Holiday Schedule | No Gatherings

Holiday Schedule 2017-02.png

In light of the holiday season, we will not be hosting Gatherings on December 24 or December 31. Each year around Christmas, we take two weeks off to allow our staff time with their families, and to remind ourselves that church is more than a Gathering. If you're interested in finding out why we take time off you can head here.

Gatherings will resume on January 7 at 9:00am, 11:15am, and 5:00pm.
