Seek the Peace of the City, looks at ten ways in which we as believers can specifically bless the community and city that we live in. We'll have practical group discussion and looks at Biblical texts that help us recognize that through things like our work, our appreciation of the arts, our interest in politics, or merely our physical presence, we ALL have a role to play in God's kingdom work being done in Orlando. Come discover your role and how you can "seek the peace" of our city.
