Tea & Testimony

Women’s Spring Brunch Potluck

Saturday, April 21, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM, Gathering Space. We are planning an "unplanned" morning for women to answer the question, "What is God doing in your life?" Maybe He's making you wait as He teaches you truth from His word. Maybe you are experiencing freedom, or you have shared the gospel with someone. Maybe you were in a Together Table and God taught you something there. Whatever it is, we want to hear it. Even if you think you have nothing to share, come to listen (and maybe God will surprise you by giving you something to say!).  We'll have the coffee and tea, please bring something for a breakfast potluck if you're able. Questions? Contact women@theurbanrefuge.com.
