We build community when we share our stories - whether they be a memory, an experience or just simply telling what we think is great about this place. The Elevating Voices project is collaborating with 12 local nonprofits through the summer and fall to collect the stories of the voices we don't always hear in mainstream media. This story was captured at Heartside Ministry on September 2.
