  • March 2-4, 2018 Happening #72
    March 2-4, 2018
    St. Paul's, Selma

    HAPPENING is one of those things that must be experienced to be fully understood. During the three-day weekend, the participants spend time seriously considering the person and teaching of Jesus Christ in a relaxed, fun, informal and loving atmosphere. They are provided with opportunities to share, discuss, learn and live with fellow Christians in an environment of acceptance and understanding. Open to youth in grades 10-12. Contact Gann Wright for more details so we can coordinate the youth at St. Mary's who may want to participate.
