Human Trafficking Awareness Night
This month, as part of a nationwide effort, we are raising awareness on the issue of human trafficking and discussing how the church should be involved both locally and globally in pushing back against the injustice.
Join us for a special presentation by Blanket Fort Hope related to the issue of human trafficking of minors in the Greater Birmingham Area.
**Due to the mature nature of the event we recommend children not attend, but we will have regular Wednesday night programming for birth-5th grade. Student Ministry will not be meeting due to Collide weekend, so please use discretion in regards to your teenagers.
