TABLE TALK
Join us at Table Talk to discuss the sermon in between services. Even if it's before service , you can still touch base and discuss the questions. You could also grab a friend and answer the questions on the tables anytime during the morning. It might help you focus on the sermon in a different way. Hope to see you there.
Hint: One of the questions this week asks us to share something about our Dad.
