📣 What’s Happening Around Circle of Hope | 10.17.18

We do things that create spaces of opportunity to grow in faith and community and to reach out to our city. Many opportunities are also for those next people around us to experience Jesus and the new creation we are getting involved in making! Share the love, spread the word.
