FCM meets May 18
The next Fellowship of Christian Men’s (FCM) breakfast is on Saturday, May 18, 2013, from 7:30-9:00am, at Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth. The cost is $6.
This breakfast will be held in the “Heritage Room” which is located on the main floor of Zehnder’s. Please RSVP to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help us prepare Zehnder’s for an approximate number of attendees. If you are unable to use email, simply attend the breakfast as you have in the past and we will accommodate you.
The speaker will be Mr. Bruce Malone. A former chemical engineer at Dow Chemical for 27 years, Bruce retired early to become full-time director of “Search for the Truth Ministries.” After being miraculously saved from death over 20 years ago, Bruce realized that rejection of Biblical truth, justified by a belief in evolution, is the acid which is eating away at the moral foundation of our culture. The purpose of both his books and presentations is to help us understand the relevance and evidence for creation – as the most rational explanation for the world around us.
