ReFrame addresses the modern day Christian’s challenge of connecting what they believe with what they do day by day. This 10 week, filmed based series invites you to encounter Jesus in your everyday life, understand the meaning of Jesus’ life and work in the biblical story, and respond to Jesus in practical and creative ways. Join us as we connect faith with all of our life.
