The Clergy Letter Project Announces
Ninth Annual
Evolution Weekend
7-9 February 2014

Trinity United Methodist Church will be one of more than 530 congregations from across the country and around the world to participate in Evolution Weekend, Feb. 7-9, a period designed to recognize that religion and science, two fields of critical importance to humans, should be seen as complementary rather than confrontational.
