MCC-Longview's "Afterlife: Where do we go from here?" class/discussion begins TONIGHT.

What happens after we die?

This March, MCC-Longview is proud to present "The Afterlife: Where Do We Go From Here?" A three-night discussion and roundtable program that will bring together leaders from various religious backgrounds and cultures to explore and talk about what the afterlife means to them.

Each week different area religious leaders will sit down with MCC-Longview counselor Jim McGraw as moderator and explore some of the most vexing aspects of what happens to us after we die.

"We are excited to offer this opportunity to our community, and we anticipate that we will have persons of all ages (16 and over) and religious backgrounds present," Community Outreach Manager Jill Ladas said.

The event is scheduled for three separate evenings - March 22, March 29 and April 5 - from 7 to 9 p.m. at MCC-Longview's Campus Center, 500 SW Longview Road, Lee‚s Summit MO.

The schedule of presenters is:
March 22 - Eastern Orthodox, Hindu, Mormon, Agnostic/Atheist
March 29 - Judaism, Protestant, Islam
April 5 - Roman Catholic, Unity, Buddhist

Each panel member will make a presentation followed by questions from the audience.

Fee: $29 for all three weeks.
