Event Description

Is Mormonism truly another Christian denomination? If it is, then we should feel free to worship together, to link arms in ministry endeavors, and cooperate in cultural or political activities. But if not, what are the implications? Should we decline common worship? Should we avoid shared ministry? Should we refuse to work together with Mormons on cultural or political issues? What stance should we take, and what principles guide us in these decisions?

In Minnesota alone, there are over 33,000 LDS members, 75 congretations, and 1 temple. Worldwide, there are over 16 million LDS members, 30,000 congregations, and 159 temples. Mormonism's influence on American politics and social issues have brought the religion into the public limelight within the past decade. In the midst of rapid cultural movement and popular waves of religious relativism, how are Christians to respond to this worldwide religion? Many of us have family members, friends, neighbors, and loved ones who belong to the Mormon faith, yet many do not know how to respond to their claims of Christian identity. 

We invite you to join us for an evening of theological discovery and interpersonal conversations. Come learn some helpful ways to engage your Mormon friends and family members in a manner that emboldens your own Christian faith!
