Wednesday, May 12th | 7:45-9pm: What does God say about our reputation? Is it important? What determines a good versus a bad reputation? What does the world say about our reputation? Let's have an open and honest conversation about it. As always, snacks provided! 

Wednesday, May 19th | 7:45-9pm: ​​​​​It's our last Wednesday night of the year! Let's celebrate with pizza and games - we'll even be playing a youth group favorite and be outside if it's nice out, so be prepared!
