If you're driving down Overton Road around 5 pm on February 27th, you may hear the rumblings of a celebration coming from the vicinity of the Fellowship Hall. If you should stop to check it out, you'll find Meal and a Deal 2019, Blues & BBQ in full swing!
Meal and a Deal is more than an annual fundraiser, more than a good meal, more than a night with your friends and great "shopping." Meal and a Deal is a gathering of teachers and mentors, encouragers and servants who invite our students to join them as missionaries in a world so in need of the Good News and a helping hand.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS for Wednesday, February 27, at 5 pm in the Fellowship Hall for MAAD 2019.
