The LEAF reminds us that we are gathered “to grow”.  We recall Jesus’ words, "I am the vine, you are the branches.  If a person remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing" (John 15:5-6).  We offer learning opportunities for all ages and small groups designed to help you grow while fostering friendships with other people in a safe and caring environment.  No one should stand alone.
