Christian Prepping Workshop

“The Noah Project” will host a free seminar about Christian prepping on February 7, 2015. When we look around the world, or even close to home, it’s easy to feel helpless with wars and other crimes raging out of control, natural weather events getting increasingly extreme and the moral fiber of many continuing to fray. There’s a lot you personally can do, though, to help prepare you, your family, your neighborhood and your wider community for troubled times ahead.

Please see event details here.
