Come and join together as we welcome our new Cursillistas, celebrate with the team, pray, sing, and support each other on our spiritual journey.

We are told “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Come join us as we celebrate and support each other as we journey together as “Grace-filled Christians.”

In Closing …

I invite each of you to read and pray on the two team scriptures from the Fall 2019 weekends. They are below, as well as links to the corresponding book in the Bible
Men’s Team – Here I Am, Lord: 1 Samuel 3:10

  • “Then the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ and Samuel said, ‘Speak for Your servant is listening.'”

Women’s Team – Bless the Lord: Psalm 103:1-2

  • “Bless the LORD, my soul; all my being, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, my soul; and do not forget all his gifts”

You are in my prayers, daily.
De Colores!
