“I ran from my calling for many years. However, once I embraced it and held the Lord to His part of the bargain of equipping me for the work, I discovered my true identity. As we spend time together this weekend, I pray the same for you as you discover and respond to the Lord’s calling on your life. Our callings may all be different, but it’s the same God who works in us and through us to accomplish His purposes.”

With a powerful presentation and breakout session by Mary Jo Dubs, developer of God in Shoes – a community outreach event.  Don’t miss it!
