Music Ministry Retreat

Every year, the music ministry puts on a retreat for all ministers and any members of the community who want to retreat with music and song! It is a faith-filled weekend of prayer, praise and workshops that brings us both closer to our God and closer as a community. For more information, please contact the Programs Coordinator, Mikaela.
