The Messiah of All Touchpoint

Cliff Hanger

My praise is continually of you.” vss. 5-6 Psalm 71:1-6 The psalmist has lived a long and faithful life–he has trusted in the Lord from the time of his youth, even from the moment of his birth. And now, in his old age things are not going so…

My First Visit

We welcome you to explore the campus…

I came for the Healing of Memories workshop for veterans, and I almost didn’t come because of the trauma I wrestle with, but your staff, the workshop leaders and the quiet and safe campus held me there and I’ve found a new sense of peace and healing.
