Building Healthy Relationships

Our Grace and Truth Conference is dedicated to demonstrate Grace to Encourage and Truth to Instruct!  We will host our Grace and Truth conference each year with new themes, but always the same emphasis…encouragement and instruction.  During the fall, we hosted a Spiritual Emphasis Conference in keeping with the first part of the Great Commandment to…Love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Our first Grace and Truth Conference will build on the second part of the Great Commandment to…Love others as our self.  To do this we want to learn how to biblically build healthy relationships with the Lord and others.  You are invited to join us for our Grace and Truth Conference!
