Trafficking 101 will take place via zoom on Saturday, March 5th from 10:00 to 12:00 pm. In our time together we will learn about trafficking here in the United States, unpack the difference between legalization and decriminalization of prostitution, and explore how the church can respond. Most people are unaware that 70% of women who enter the sex trade are girls who have aged out of foster care. Most are unaware that the average age of entry in the United States is 12-years-old. And, most are unaware at what they can do about it. In this training you will learn all this and more. This training is lead by Rev. Bonnie Gatchell. founder and director of Route One Ministry. Route One has reached women sexually exploited for more than 12 years. To find out more: www.lovedbyrouteone.org

Do you need hope this Christmas? If so, you’re not alone. We enter the story of Jesus’ birth to find a world that was dark, problems that were overwhelming, and people whose lives were desperate—yet beautiful, complex, and real. In their stories, we find ourselves. And we meet the God who offers hope.
At this year’s Grace Chapel Women’s Christmas Gathering on December 1st, women of all ages will come together to celebrate the season and encourage one another. Experience a creative, narration of the Christmas story and hear real stories of people then and now whose lives were forever Changed by Hope.

Bring a friend—or meet one here.
