Rev. Brian Maguire will preach a sermon entitled, “A Little Curiosity” based on Exodus 3: 1-5.
Connections: Adults and children begin the evening in prayer together in our chapel. Adults then engage in interactive, engaging and thought-provoking adult education led by Pastors Brian and Denise while our children share in faith formation and storytelling led by our Children’s Ministry Coordinator, Rachel Boden. Nursery care is available for our youngest attendees. We conclude around 7:30pm each night so there is plenty of time to get little ones to bed. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesdays! *PLEASE NOTE: Connections will take a break for the months of July and August. See you in September!
