July 12th Luncheon

Susan Lee

"They'll Know We are Christians"

Like the father who welcomed his wayward son back home we also need to be welcoming and accepting. It's not about wearing or displaying some religious emblem but putting our faith into action so that others will know we are Christians. Join us for a message that is sure to encourage your heart.

Based on the foundational truths found in:
Matthew 21:28-31
"What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’ 
“‘I will not,’ he answered, but later he changed his mind and went.
“Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I will, sir,’ but he did not go.  
“Which of the two did what his father wanted?”
“The first,” they answered.
