Small group study

When Anything Goes: Being Christian in a Post-Christian World

Mondays, 9:00 a.m., February 20, 27, and March 6

Vanilla Bean

Since the beginning, every age has produced apologists who defend and define the Christian faith against current ideas and trends that threaten it. Today’s defenses come while congregations are dwindling, God is removed from schools, and those still looking for answers to faith questions are being labeled with words that are no longer accurate as soon as they exist—the seekers, the Nones, the spiritual but not religious, the neither spiritual nor religious.

While America believes we live in a post-Christian world, a world where anything goes, Leslie Williams explores why Jesus Christ is still the answer for a culture that outlaws public prayer, lives in the fast food lane, and tweets and twitters to communicate.

Come discover for yourself why being Christian still makes sense.

SHORT-TERM SUNDAY SCHOOL STUDY

Sunday School Short Term Study on the Belhar Confession

 

Beginning February 5, we will have a short term study on the Belhar Confession during Sunday School led by Belle McMaster. Belhar is the latest Confession  approved by the Presbyterian Church, USA in June, 2016. It comes from the Dutch Reformed Mission Church in South Africa.  Confessions tell us what our church believes. The theme of Belhar is reconciliation. The four week study will be held on February 5, 12, 19, and 26 in the Fellowship Hall.  All are welcome!
