CHIC Resto Dance

We were there!

Our youth and leaders who attended CHIC2015 are now back and (nearly) recovered from their week in Tennessee.   As the pastor, to be hear that stories of how their lives were shifted is so exciting because I know how much prayer and work was done in sending and covering over them. This was truly an…
