Theology and Brew (Evening and Daytime)

Although not much happened historically on April 20 (unless you count the creation of the Wisconsin territory – where would we be without the “cheese curtain”?), you’re in for a treat at the Evening Edition on Monday, April 20 at 7:00 p.m. at Now Serving in La Grange.  Adults of all ages will gather again (some will bring their favorite wine) for food, drink, and conversation about a recent blog that will get your energy flowing as well as provide a chance to get to know other members and friends even better.  As a bonus, invite a friend you’d like everyone to meet.
If afternoons are open for you, please join us one week later on Monday, April 27 at 1:00 p.m. at Saban’s, located at 9507 Joliet Rd, Hodgkins IL.

Email tandbrew@presbyws.org or call the church office to get on the mailing list for the blog and you will receive the blog for discussion a few days ahead.
