## NYC Church Events: April 10-April 17



This week FaithStreet showcases an interesting collection of church-sponsored events in New York City, and like other weeks, there is never a shortage of great events to choose from.  This weeks events include the very first service of a new church plant in the East Village, the first meeting of a “marriage enrichment” class intended for couples pre or post marriage, a public service event to clean up NYC now that Spring has arrived, a class on “spirituality for the skeptical but curious” sponsored by The River, and an event sponsored by Judson Memorial Church that will provide an “overview of the Honduran resistance movement and the on-going crisis facing the country.”  If you would like to suggest an event for inclusion in our weekly events post, please email us [faithstreet (at) faithstreet (dot) com], and if you attend one of these events we would love to hear what you thought about it.  Check ‘em out:
