During this “stay-at-home” season, the Ingalls Creek Center for Faith, Calling, and Community offers occasional virtual events on topics important to the people we serve.  While gathering online is not the same as an in-person gathering in the mountains, participants in these online events have reported that they found the experience to be surprisingly engaging and helpful!
