Each week in Wednesday Wisdom Chapel, we hear from speakers whose specializations and experience bring us biblically-based wisdom for Christian engagement in the arts and culture, reconciliation, missions and evangelism, justice, relationships, spiritual formation and other relevant topics. Come join us as we gather together as a community to pray, “Thy Kingdom Come” in all these areas of our lives.
