Faith Formation Program 2017-18 - Tell us what you think!!

The overall concept of the plan is to bring all of our programming to Wednesdays—for all ages and also having a warm meal for you!  Bringing us all together offers us a great opportunity to meet one another, share a meal, and all be part of this awesome faith community!  Wednesday night would be Church Night—3x a month, October thru April. We hope that our plans moving forward for the 2017-18 school year makes it easier, family inclusive, and offers opportunities for your kids and also parents as well!
