All Church Gathering: Creating Christian Community

All are invited and encouraged to gather together as a church community for a one-day conference focusing on how to build authentic Christian community in our lives. We live in a day and age when people yearn for connection more now than possibly ever before. Join us and learn both the impact authentic community can make in our lives and in the world, as well as how to become a vibrant community of faith centered on the love of Jesus Christ.

Author, pastor and professor Dr. Bill Donahue will lead us throughout the day with inspirational teaching and engaging group discussions and activities. He will also be preaching on Sunday morning. Please register for the Saturday session here. If you can only attend the morning or afternoon session, you are still welcome to come.
