More Opportunities & Info
Summer Seminar Series – Jun. 27th: This week’s topic is Addiction and Homeless Community… Lead by Trevor Young & Jill Dixon, we will examine the situations of those in Santa Barbara who experience addiction or homelessness–or both. Weekly seminars run on Tuesday nights at 7pm, with BYOE BBQ beforehand at 5:45. The objective of these evenings is not primarily a “call to action,” but rather to seek growth in compassion for the city outside our church walls. Questions?
