We Are The Church Together In This City Meets April 30-May 28

Tuesday, April 23, 2019
This Life Group joins churches together and meets April 30-May 28
This Life Group joins churches together and meets April 30-May 28

Olivet Baptist, St. Paul AME and St. Paul’s Episcopal are joining to challenge the question How We Do Life Together, including worship, praying, conversing and sharing together.

Officials say this is an opportunity to blur racial, denominational and economic lines or any other lines that may exist, and this is done over time. Building relationships flourish in contexts where there is shaped worship and prayer, common meals, informal conversations and a spirit of witnessing to the city.

This Life Group will meet five Tuesdays, April 30-May 28, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Olivet Baptist Church, 751 ML King Blvd. (across from the main location). This Life Group is open to the public.

April 30 - Bishop Kevin Adams, Olivet Baptist
It Doesn’t Matter What’s Been Written So Far… It’s How We Fill Up the Rest of the Pages That Counts 

Pastor Chris Sands, Olivet Baptist
Live: Take Off Tuesday

May 7 - Reverend Paul C.  and Maxine Adkins, St. Paul AME
Everything We Need is Already In Us

May 14 - Reverend Joe Woodfin, St. Paul’s Episcopal
The Power of Sharing Stories

May 21 - Reverend Kenneth Love, St. Paul AME
Every Breath We Draw Is Hallelujah

May 28 - Reverend Brad Whitaker, St. Paul’s Episcopal
Let Us Break Bread Together
