Steve Hinkle and Ali Shoenfelt are facilitating this dinner and discussion series hosted by Blacknall's Evangelism Team. We'll study the Biblical mandate to love our neighbors (or co-workers, classmates, etc.), learn practical ways to engage the non-believers among us, and challenge each other to try something new. After the first two meetings, we’ll break for five weeks to practice what we’ve learned. On February 27, we’ll come together to discuss our experiences. Dinner and childcare provided. Bonus: Pastors Allan and David are cooking the first meal!
