All Columbus Chapter programs are open to the public and free of charge, unless otherwise indicated. We hope you will join us!
The churches at which we hold our programs are very generous with our chapter in terms of resources and building usage. To allow them to recoup some of the costs attendant to hosting us, churches may choose to take a freewill offering during our programs. Please remember that these programs are all open to the public and always free to our members. You are under no obligation to contribute to the offering unless you are moved to do so. Our thanks go out to the many churches and other venues who have so generously supported the work of our chapter.
