Lunch and Learn with Eric Swanson
You’re invited to a Lunch and Learn with Eric Swanson, co-author of The Externally Focused Church (Group, 2004).
Eric will talk about what it takes for a church, community and a city to have focused intention toward the people outside the walls of our church and how we can respond to those in need with grace and true biblical hospitality – yes, it can be messy!
We’ll close up the session with an update from Lisa Welter, Safe Families for Children MN Director, on the state of child welfare in Minnesota and how the church can rise up and make a significant difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families for Christ.
