On Wednesdays during the entire months of June and July, we host Christ and the City, an event we have created to engage both you and the city of Holland! From 6-8 we enjoy a meal catered from a downtown restaurant as well as participate in a conversation from a community member surrounding the topic "Faith and..."
Join us for a night of free food and childcare, as well as a fun night of faithful conversation and community building! Feel free to invite friends, family members and any and all neighbors! Childcare begins at 6:45pm in the toddler nursery.
Next Christ in the City: Join the conversation on 7/6 (Wed.) at Christ in the City from 7pm to 8pm! Dr. David Hoekman (from Southern Nazarene University) will lead us into a conversation about faith and ecology. A light supper will precede the conversation at 6pm on the front lawn. Child care is provided during the conversation and we ask that parents promptly pick up their children after the conversation. If you can help with set up or take down for the meals, please contact Chikara our summer Intern at firstname.lastname@example.org.
