Government Street UMC Offers Free Seminar

Have you ever felt a bit like the troubled man who professed to Jesus: "Lord, I believe. Help me overcome my unbelief!" Do you want to dig deeper into your faith so as to become more "sure of what you hope for, and certain of what you cannot see"? Haven't you questioned whether there is any scientific support for the Genesis creation account--or historical evidence to confirm the ministry, crucifixion and, yes, post-resurrection appearances of a man named "Jesus"?  If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then our upcoming free seminar at Government Street UMC, 901 Gov't St. Mobile, entitled "Reasons to Believe" is just what you've been looking for! The first session will be held on Monday, July 9, at 6:30 PM in the sanctuary. Come join us. This could be a life-changing experience! - Dr. Bert Park, Pastor.
