The class is recommended for middle school students through adults, although younger children may attend with a parent. A $5 donation (if able) is requested to cover the cost of handouts.

Convivio is the Spanish equivalent for ‘dinner on the ground’ – i.e. a time of fellowship that includes some food. This evening, the English-speaking worship assembly will begin at 5:00pm to join with the Spanish-speaking assembly that meets at the same hour. We will be together in the Worship Center. Carlos Bautista will preach in Spanish and his son, Jacob, will translate. Following the worship assembly, we will enjoy a meal together in the Dining Hall. Please bring a dessert to share. A few others will be bringing Mexican casseroles and all the trimmings. We will also be asking for a contribution to help fund the Hispanic Ministry for the remainder of the year.
