Men of the Covenant Luncheon
Rev. Brad Mercer

The Men of the Covenant Luncheon meets the first Thursday of the fall and spring quarters at First Presbyterian Church. This time is set apart for men in the church and in the wider Jackson-Metro area to gather for fellowship and spiritual encouragement. Each meeting is designed to equip Christian men for service in the Kingdom of God. The topics are chosen for specific application to personal devotion, work, family, and church life.

To kick off our Men of the Covenant theme for the fall, the Rev. Brad Mercer will be speaking on September 3, 2009, in Miller Hall on the subject of "Following God's Call"
