Sunday

Tara Baptist Church is offering a free one-day seminar, "Yeshua in Context: The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah," on Sunday, March 13. The stories of Yeshua (Jesus) make us ask: Is he real? Is he the One? Did he do those things? What does it mean for me? Special guest speaker will be Rabbi Derek Leman, who will speak during morning services, and again after a "potluck lunch" in the fellowship hall. Sessions begin at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11:45 a.m. For more information, contact the church at (770) 473-0874, or at www.tarabaptist.com
