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."

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.

Roy Exum: UVa --Time For Change
