Enrichment Weekend 2018

Enrichment Weekend 2015

Our special guest for this enrichment weekend was Dr. Rodger Nishioka, the Benton Family Associate Professor of Christian Education at Columbia Theological Seminary (Decatur, GA). Dr. Nishioka spoke about how PCUSA churches around the country are engaging their local and larger communities, and how we can make a difference in our own community by meeting our neighbors and loving them as we are called to do by none other than Jesus Christ. It was truly a weekend to remember!
This group consist of 4th and 5th graders. They meet once a month and enjoy field trips to local venues.
