03.13.19 | Leadership News | by Stacey Chacon

Thanks to everyone who came out on March 8 for the GMR Game Night & Ministry Update! It was a fun evening of trivia (and lots of laughter!) and sharing ministry updates and prayer together.

Special thanks to Brad Owen for being our official Game Show Host for the Trivia Night! And a special thank you to all of the behind-the-scenes volunteers who helped make the night such a fun experience!
