Monday June 6 Living in the Tension

As we will be hosting a large youth group of 15-17 year-old students tonight for our Living in the Tension gathering, we will be closing the group to the public. Our apologies as we have never closed the LITT gatherings to the public before, but as we will be talking with them and their youth pastor about faith, sexuality, bullying, etc. we wanted to make sure that it is a safe and comfortable environment for them so they can feel free to openly share their thoughts and ask whatever questions may be on their minds.

Much love.
