Creative Expressions of Church

April 15, 2021

2:00-3:30pm ET

Crises like we are now facing often create opportunities for new things to emerge. In the spirit of Ephesians 3:20, as we move forward we believe that by the power at work within us, God, who works good in and through all things, will accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine! The presenters we have recruited for this webinar believe this too and look forward to sharing their creative ideas and engaging in a time for Q&A together.
