This event has passed, but the Celebration of 40 Years of Ministry continues!

“The Holy Spirit comes where He is loved, where He is invited, where He is expected.”

St. Bonaventure

So we say,
“Come, Holy Spirit!”

Come experience a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the power of God’s presence alive in the Church today, and His abundant gifts poured out on all to equip, encourage, and empower.


Together we are
On Fire and Lighting the Way!

Friday and Saturday
