2015 Assembly of the People of God

The 2015 Assembly of the People of God is next weekend!

Have you registered yet? If not there’s still time – registration closes this Friday, May 29! This year’s Assembly focuses on our mission as the Church, and on equipping each one of us, regardless of our background or charisms, to serve the mission in our own unique way. When you register, you’ll get to pick three workshops for the day, to help customize the experience and give you the tools and knowledge that YOU need!

Don’t forget, we’re also offering free childcare for ages 3-10 all day on Saturday, generously sponsored by RCL/Benziger Publishing.
