Connections


This page is dedicated to ways of keeping connected during this isolating time. We will update this page frequently as we are able to add new resources and tools. This page will include resources for children’s ministry, family activities, an online social forum, and more. May this time allow us to nurture our spirituality and develop new holy habits that keep us connected to God and one another.
