Equipping Weekend is a chance to go deeper on certain topics than a Sunday allows. We'll start on Friday night with a Mission Reflection Night, hearing how our church family has Participated with the Holy Spirit this year and the work God did through that.
Then on Saturday, we'll have several seminars taught both by pastors and lay leaders in their areas of expertise. Saturday is a chance to Pursue God and learn how to better Proclaim Jesus.
Topics will include:
