The beliefs and practices of the Mormon faith will be explored at 7 p.m.CT Monday, May 22 at Lifetree Café.

The program—titled “Mormons: Christian? Cult? What do they really believe?”—includes a filmed interview with someone who has left the Mormon church and also someone who has joined it. In addition, a filmed interview with a theology professor will be shown and discussed.

“We’ll discuss what Mormons believe and whether the Mormon church is Christian,” said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. “Some accuse the Mormon church of being a cult. We’ll explore whether that’s a fair depiction.”

The Lifetree event will encourage various views from the community, according to Cable.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
