We, as Christians, will be bombarding the White House with "Free Saeed" postcards to raise awareness and to let President Obama know that we have not forgotten our brother in chains and we don’t want him to either.

 

We want individuals, churches, ministries, youth groups, non-profit organizations, etc. to join with us. Beginning September 22, 2014, the week of the 2-year anniversary of Saeed’s incarceration, we will begin to send postcards en mass to the White House.

 

We have one approved postcard style, approved by Saeed’s wife, Naghmeh, that we will be using. The back of the card shows a quotes by President Obama and Naghmeh Abedini and a specific message to President Obama himself. Postcards should be ordered as soon as possible in order to begin sending them on time. But the blitz can and hopefully will go on after the anniversary date.

Have you ever wondered how God fits into evolution?  Did God use evolution to create everything?  Was there a real Adam and Eve?  Did some guy named Noah really build an ark to escape a flood?   How could all of those animals fit into the ark, anyway?  Doesn't that prove the story to be nothing but a myth?

 

Brian Lauer will provide all of the answers to these, and many others!

This is a special, one-day-only event.   Join us at 9:00 a.m. for our Sunday School time, and then at 10:00 a.m. for our morning service.  Brian will be speaking during both services.
