SUNDAYS, beginning November 27: Sundays a hot chocolate bar will be available in the Gathering Place and we need your help to make it happen! Each week we need 4-6 people to help with hospitality (including setting-up, hosting and cleaning-up afterwards). It’s a great way to get involved as an individual, friend group or family! And remember…it’s not just about a cup of hot cocoa…it’s about connection!
