Mormonism Q&A with answers from Mormons

Oct 30, 2012 7 - 8 PM

Texas A&M Memorial Student Center MSC ballroom 2401
Due to increased attention on the Mormon faith in recent years, we will be holding a special event on Texas A&M campus, Tuesday, October 30, entitled "Mormonism Q&A with answers from Mormons" in MSC ballroom 2401 from 7-8pm. The event will inform and educate the community on Mormonism and dispel any confusion or misunderstanding regarding the Mormon faith. The evening will begin with a short introductory/informational period and then will be opened up to the audience to have questions answered by local church members. Anyone who is curious to know more about the Mormon faith or merely wish to educate themselves on this unique religion is invited to join us.
