Francisco “Paco”* joins us this month to talk about how to be a witness of the faith to those in your work place.
Theology on Tap is a great time for young adults in their 20’s and 30’s to come together for fellowship, food and drinks, and hear a compelling talk from a dynamic speaker on the topics that impact us daily. Theology On Tap – Southeastern Michigan meets on the last Thursday of each month. Come any time after 6:30 to order some food and spend time with friends. The talk begins at 7:30 and is followed by a live Q & A.
Look for our upcoming events with these great speakers!
