Courage and EnCourage Spring Events
Dear Courage and EnCourage family,

The frost is thawing and signs of new life are beginning to appear in New England just as the Church is preparing to commemorate the Passion and Death of Our Lord and to celebrate the hope of eternal life in His Resurrection. Spring is an especially appropriate time to seek renewal and allow Him to stir up His life within us. Fortunately, there are several opportunities for Courage and EnCourage members to do just that! 

A few details have changed since the posting of our March newsletter. Be sure to take a close look at these event offerings to see if there is something the Holy Spirit might be prompting you to attend.

God bless you,
Courage Central Office
