The soul of the family is under tremendous attack.

More than 70 speakers will offer Free, short, and impactful presentations for teens, young adults, singles, married couples, and parents.

LET US PRAY...
DISCUSSIONS START THURSDAY!
Though prayer is one of the essentials of a thriving faith, we often feel as if we’re talking to ourselves. Or, worse, we feel like we’re talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the faith be so elusive? In Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God Dr. Tim Gray masterfully uses the ancient Church's tradition of lectio divina to show you the simple steps for making prayer an effort of love and intimacy with God.
