The program will highlight services provided by the organization and offer the opportunity for people in attendance to ask questions and learn more about how they can get involved.

“We view ourselves as partners with local pastors and congregations to minister and serve those here in our local community who need our love and support and reciprocate by supporting and encouraging the local pastors and congregations at the same time.” Brunner said.
