As we navigate our life’s journey, landmarks provide way-finding for us to be assured that we are on the right path. We understand this if we are driving through a town, but it is more important when we rely on landmarks in our faith to anchor us to truth and avoid the landmines and tripwires that culture may present.
“Landmarks” will offer four unique tracks of workshops throughout the year to come alongside singles, couples, parents, and every believer striving to engage with culture. Each workshop will be inspired by an established resource and led by a local facilitator. Review which sessions fit your schedule and register today.
Each workshop is provided at no charge. Optionally you may purchase the accompanying resources linked to each session. Additionally, childcare may be provided for a nominal fee for each workshop. Please feel free to contact us at calvaryga.com/contact-us/ with any questions.
