FusionSaturday, December 12th, is our monthly Fusion Service.  Fusion is our Young Adults Ministry which reaches out to those between 18 and 35(-ish) who are un-churched or whose home churches have no young adults ministry of their own.  This month  we will be addressing self-condemnation and seeing ourselves as God truly sees us, having been created in His image and likeness.  We will begin at 6:30 with light appetizers and the service begins at 7 o’clock.  Everyone is welcome and childcare is provided.  A Facebook event has been created HERE.  Click to join and invite those you know who would be blessed to attend.
