Cost and Admission

This event is free to attend.

We don’t often realize that the many experiences in our lives are the making of our narrative. Esther had no idea her arrival at the palace, as a servant girl would be a step up to royalty. Joseph had no idea his brother’s drop in the pit, would be a lift to the palace. Each experienced significant life challenges that contributed to the making of their narratives. How often do your life experiences present unpleasant challenges that you’d rather not face? Today’s chapel will welcome you on an amazing journey to walk out your story.
