Big Questions

We’ve all got things we want answers to and it often seems hard to know where to get them.

We may not have every answer, but we want to provide a space
to explore some big questions that you may have.

That might be questions about faith, God, church
what do we believe? Can you really know God?

Join us for some informal conversations around a cup of coffee.
