Sanctuary Sunday: We are Called

  • 3400 Norman Avenue Baltimore (map)

Every second Sunday of the month, Dreams and Visions gathers for worship.

*This gathering has been reschedule from January 13, because of snow!*


January's gathering, "We Are Called" will explore how God calls each of us in different ways. How do we decide what to DO with our lives, when the world needs justice-makers and each of us needs to stay healthy and grounded? When the world's need feels overwhelming, where do we put our energies? And do we respond out of duty, desire, guilt, or gratitude?

3pm + House Church Interest Meeting
3:30pm + Doors Open for Snacks and Set Up
4:pm + Gathering begins
