What Would Jesus Eat? Presentation
Jesus calls us to serve. In order to serve we must take care of our bodies which are God's property. Part of taking care of our bodies is what we put into them that provides fuel for our activities and service. Next Sunday, February 9 at 2 pm, Chris Gross will present What Would Jesus Eat that gives a Biblical basis on how we should fuel our bodies and how to be good stewards of God's property. The presentation has been emailed in advance so that you may review and come with questions -- if you need it resent to you, please email katie@hollandsumc.org.
