  • Church hosts conference for deaf
  • Small groups provide guidance, camaraderie, encouragement

    I really anticipate early Saturday mornings. I know that the following awaits me: good coffee, great conversations about life and the Bible, and deep friendships that encourage me as a husband, father and friend.

    No matter how long we gather together over coffee, I walk away strengthened, encouraged and challenged in my own life; for this, I am grateful.

    I am appreciative of what my friends can bring to the table on a Saturday morning, and I hope that the feeling is mutual.
