  • What is a Stay-cation?  Have you ever gone on a vacation and come home more tired than when you left?

    With a Stay-cation you will experience the rest and relaxation of a vacation, but your family will be close to home and you won’t spend a dime.

    The Christian Church is hosting just such an event.
