3 Minute Faith Statement – Wow!” with RevAlex

December 4 & 18 – 7:00-8:15 p.m. – “3 Minute Faith Statement – Wow!” with RevAlex
Come, Come on one of two Tuesday evenings in December to play with RevAlex around how you might give voice to your faith. The three minute parameter comes from the academic practice, currently in vogue, of doing a “3 Minute Thesis Presentation.” We’ll do similarly about what believe. We’re also likely to laugh, think and deepen in spirit. We’re certain to enjoy one another’s company and good holiday refreshments.
