Christ, the new creation has come.

formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is
an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as Godís grace and love is
revealed to you through other believers.

from a sponsor. After one accepts this invitation they complete an
application. The Chrysalis leaders prayerfully consider each
applicant and in Godís time, the person is invited to attend a three-day
experience of New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle.

members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and
places of work. Chrysalis lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives
