Summer of Faith Speaker Series

Each summer, our church is on hiatus from its regular program for both children and adults. In lieu of the regular church service format, a revised opportunity was born and has successfully filled that need for members in July and August through our Summer of Faith Speaker Series. Noted local leaders are invited to speak on the selected theme which varies annually.
