Walking Towards Reconciliation

Every second Monday beginning Monday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m. Please join us as we view and discuss APTN’s “First Contact”.  First Contact takes six Canadians, all with stereotypical opinions about Indigenous People, on a unique 28-day exploration of Indigenous Canada. It is a journey that will turn their lives upside down, challenging their perceptions and confronting their prejudices about a world they never imagined they would see. This exploration of the true Indigenous experience in Canada will change the participants’ lives forever.

Tattoo Culture and Faith

Every second Monday beginning Monday, November 4 at 7:00 p.m. The series will last 8 weeks as we discuss topics such as; What is the story behind your tattoo?, Have you been ostracized for having ink?, Flash or custom?, as well as others. Please call the church office to register.
