We live in a world and a time in which we are faced with many conflicts, challenges, and confusion, and we often have more questions than answers. When it comes to how we talk about and understand sexuality, we can find so many different perspectives, viewpoints and experiences - even within the church. So, as a community, we want to humbly embark on a journey of seeking to understand, listen, and learn from the truth of scripture, our brothers and sisters in Christ, and the heart and love of God. Please join us in person or online for this important conversation!
