THE NATURE OF GOD EXPLORED AT LIFETREE CAFÉ Exclusive footage from the Lionsgate movie The Shack, releasing on March 3, will be shown at Lifetree Café on Thursday, March 9 at 12:30 p.m. at the Candlewood Pool House. The footage will be used to spark a conversation about the characteristics of God. “Recent surveys show that 90 percent of Americans say they believe in God, but there is little consensus on how God interacts with humanity,” says Lifetree Café representative Craig Cable. “We’ll take time to examine different viewpoints people hold and how their views impact their lives.” During the program titled, “Meeting God Face to Face,” Lifetree Café participants will have the opportunity to discuss their personal views of God and how they may have changed over time.
ATTENDANCE for Sunday, February 26 was 65 and total offering was $2,509.
