Kennebec Baptist Church is offering GriefShare starting Tuesday Sept. 7th - Tuesday Dec. 14th. It will be offered at 12 noon and 7pm each week.
GriefShare walks with people through one of the most difficult times in their life-the loss of a loved one. This is offered for adults who have lost a spouse, a child, or a close relative or friend. There is no cost involved to participants. Please follow one of the links to register or find out more.
Rural Collective Summit is an event hosted by Redemption Hill-Erwin to connect, encourage, equip, and resource those pastors and leaders serving in isolated, forgotten, and small places. The summit is small-town sourced to keep the “translation gap” narrow, and it is gospel-centered to encourage us in Christ's love for us and His love for our community.
