Part 1 – What we learned from the AIDS Crisis. How do we apply that today?
Live Webinar Date: Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Many of our leaders and pioneers of MCC led the church through the AIDS Crisis in the 1980’s and 90’s. While the COVID-19 crisis and the AIDS crisis have their differences, they also have many similarities. Pastor Vance says, “Hearing the stories from so many on how MCC and particularly the women of MCC got us through the crisis has always inspired me and amazed me at the faith of this community.”
