Research revealing people’s common perceptions of Christians will be explored at 7 p.m. CT Monday, July 17 at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled “What People Really Think of Christians...and Why,” features a filmed interview with Gabe Lyons, co-author of unChristian.

“We wanted to know what people’s top-of-mind reaction was when they heard the word Christian,” Lyons explained. “When the research came back, it was pretty devastating.”

During the program, Lifetree Café participants will have opportunities to share positive and negative experiences they’ve had with Christians.

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.
