Wednesday, February 20, 2013

On behalf of the Men at Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, the public is invited to its first "Men’s Business Lunch", on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at noon at Sticky Fingers Downtown, back room. It will be a BBQ buffet with drink for $10. Pay at the door or online in advance. The cost includes tip and tax. The meeting will be led by Pastor Mark Flynn.

These business lunches will offer fellowship and the opportunity to hear about relative work issues from a Christian and inspirational viewpoint.

The first lunch topic is: "The Clashing Cultures Christian Business Men Face." This subject embraces the 1 Corinthians passage about "how God's wisdom and vision are often different from the wisdom of the world", including the various aspects of the American business culture, what it wants you to put first, and the clash of those two cultures.

Register for the lunch with the church office so organizers will know how many to expect. You will be given the option to pay online when registering. For additional information, contact Brandon Abney.

A Service of Healing with anointing and prayers led by Rev. Flynn will be Sunday, in the chapel at 10:45 a.m. and at 12:15 p.m. The alternative worship service Sunday, at 7 p.m. will be Emergent Alternative.
