New Adult Sunday School class

New Adult Sunday School class on Genesis starting soon. The entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is the record of human history that runs parallel with God’s redemptive history for mankind whom He loves. Genesis lays the foundation for our understanding of the truths revealed in this recorded history. Establishing ourselves firmly on these foundational truths strengthens our faith and our effectiveness in pointing the world to Jesus.

New Women’s Bible Study starting this fall: Mama Bear Apologetics.

What is apologetics? It is the intellectual defense of the truth of the Christian religion. The word apologetics stems from the Greek word apologia, which means simply an answer given in reply.

You’re convinced the chest holds an infinitely invaluable treasure, but your friend has some questions. Enter apologetics. Put simply, it is the rational response against the objections people bring…
