After Hours: Uncommon Ground
In this small group we will consider how Christians can interact with those whose beliefs may radically differ from their own in such a way that shows respect and remains faithful to Christian understandings of the gospel. Along the way, we will discuss how our own experiences with God and others have shaped the way we understand what it means to live out the gospel in every day life. The group will be led by Pastor Justin and will meet Mondays from 8:30-9:30 p.m. via Zoom, starting June 1. Click here for more information.
