2019 Global Impact Celebration

Join us February 8-10, 2019. The theme for this year's GIC is DEEP! We look forward to welcoming YOU along with missionaries representing 10 different mission organizations.  Some are from organizations right here in Columbus, and others are from as far away as Kosovo and Honduras.  We are sure to receive a beautiful and inspiring glimpse of what God is doing in certain parts of our world.  Our hope is that we will grow deeper as a church in our commitment to Christ and to sharing his love with the world. Enjoy guest speakers Bob Lupton on Friday night/Saturday morning and Thomas Kemper on Sunday morning during our two worship services (8:30 and 11:00 only --- no 9:00 service that day, but our Chapel Band will participate in the 8:30 and 11:00 services in the Worship Center).
