Widen the Screen Conversations

In News by Kim Eiffert

Widen the Screen Conversations
Tuesdays, September 14, 21 & 28 form 7:00-8:30pm (CST)
During our Widen the Screen worship series, we want to create opportunities for deeper conversation. We know that there is more to the story than we can explore on any given Sunday morning.  We have invited a series of hosts to share their expertise an/or lead us through some deeper conversation that help us widen our perspective about how we love our neighbors. 

All Events are on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm (CST) and will be in-person in the Grace Avenue Worship Center.  Childcare will be available upon request. 

There will be a Live Stream/Zoom option as well.  Please note that the Live Stream/Zoom links will not be publicly available so be sure to register and select the online option.  We will email you the information the day before the event.
