The weekly schedule includes religious services, scripture studies, counseling and a variety of classes for personal growth. Opportunities are also available for recreation, retreats, fellowship and community service. If you are looking for a place to make new friends, grow in your faith and find encouragement for the challenges you face daily, this is the place to start. If you are looking for a particular faith group that doesn’t currently meet here or simply desire to make contact with a local congregation, the chaplains will also assist you in fulfilling that need as well. Existing religious services are listed.
