Men’s Fellowship Looks at Challenges and Joys (12/13/14)

The Men’s Fellowship group met on Saturday 12/13.  It was one of our early morning meetings that gave us the chance to start off a new day by looking into God’s Word.  Our guest speaker was Gino Curcuruto, and we looked at Luke 10:1-2, 17-22. Because of our relationship with Christ, we should want to “hang out” with those who don’t know Him  We should want to build relationships and allow the love and hope that we have as redeemed people of peace (see Luke 10:6)...
