Saturdays of Service
Saturdays of Service is a new concept being offered through the Agapé Center. This one-time, direct service opportunity will provide an "on-ramp" to engage with a local community partner and will raise awareness of social issues facing our community. Please join us for our first Saturday of Service, which will take place on September 17!
