Upcoming Events

Throughout the year, we have many different events ranging from a couple hours to a couple of weeks in length. We play games, eat lots of food, go to fun places, worship in different settings, and spend time serving the community. Mostly, we'll do anything as long as we're together! Check this space every couple weeks for the lastest details for the events that are coming up!
