Tuesdays, May 24 - June 28 in the Community House.  Join us as we study a 6 week video series entitled "Journey to Jesus - Guiding Christ-Centered Friendships with Muslims." 

MuslimsinprayerIn today's world someone of the Islamic faith is probably already living by you, working with you or has children going to the same school as your children.  In an ever increasing stereotyping by our culture of both Christians and Muslims, the question is raised, "how do I, a Christian, relate to or speak to a Muslim when it comes to faith issues?"

LGCC wants to help cut through some of this stereotping by offering opportunities to be better equipped in relation to the Muslim faith. The series has been authored by Roy Oksnevad, who is also our speaker.  Childcare is available and sign up is not required.
