Rooting for the Underdog: Churches Striving Against the Odds

November 10, 20179:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Real Life Church of God
6020 Lemon Street
East Petersburg, PA 17520

Cost: $35.00, includes lunch

Join us for a day of storytelling, teaching, and mutual encouragement as we root for the underdog, for churches choosing to push back against daunting odds. The aim is to create a tipping point for participants  – the moment when distraction shifts to focus, weariness to energy, and discouragement to determination.
