As Christians, we are called to be advocates for God’s Word, and we are called to speak truth into ethical issues and courageously stand up for what’s morally right according to our beliefs. But in order to engage others in these discussions with grace and kindness, first we need to arm ourselves with knowledge and understanding of each of these topics. We are here to help you in Bridging the Gap. Developed by expert healthcare professionals, this new small group study is designed to ask difficult, thought-provoking questions as we seek the truth found in God’s Word about the ethical issues facing Christians today. Session Topics include Addictions, Beginning of Life, End of Life, Gender Identity, Right of Conscience and Sexuality. Developed to be used by small groups in a question-and-answer format to stimulate discussion, each session includes multiple scriptural, scientific and medical references. Some of these topics are divisive, but we are called as Christians to ask these difficult, questions. In the end, we pray it will stimulate minds and stir hearts toward God as we educate and encourage those who seek the truth. This 6-week course begins offsite Thursday, April 20th at 6:30pm at the home of Doug and Jackie Rowe (1681 Blakeley Corners Road, E. Aurora). Class size limit: 14.
The world is filled with information and competing ideas. Many voices, web pages and books claim to have the truth that people should follow, but they cannot all be true. The Bible claims to be true and says that only God’s words will last forever. This 9-week course presents evidence that the Bible is true and is the only book fully worthy of our trust. The teaching style is interactive so participants can ask questions each week. Bill Marshall and Shawn Claybolt co-lead this study, beginning Friday, March 24th at 6:30pm in the Youth Sanctuary. Childcare on request.
