His message still holds meaning for us today.

Theology on Tap
Every Other Monday @ 6:30pm, Starts January 8
Denton County Brewing Company
Theology on Tap aims to connect theology and life, and learn about God and ourselves in the process. On a typical night, we’ll gather around 6:30pm for drinks, food, and discussion. The facilitator for the evening will frame the topic for discussion, make some remarks to get the discussion going, and then prompt a larger discussion with the group. Each participant is responsible for helping others think through the topic and move the discussion in a stimulating, engaging, and fruitful direction. Check out the Theology on Tap Facebook page for updated information and announcements through the semester! https://www.facebook.com/ToTStAndrew/
