Engaging Culture & Theology

The 4th Saturday of each month, we will take the time to discuss a book relevant to culture and theology issues and how we as a church can engage.  This will be a round table discussion in place of the sermon.  October's book was Embracing Exile by Scott Daniels, and we'll be covering a new book soon!  Copies of the book will be provided at the information desk. They are $5 each. Pizza will be provided.

Velva’s Sunday School Class

Featuring a DVD led series by Andy Stanley, titled "When God?" Sometimes we think God is inattentive, uncooperative or late in answering our prayers. We all face times when it feels like God is far away. Our prayers may remain unanswered and our circumstances go from bad to worse. During these times, God doesn't just seem distant; he seems distracted. People tell us to pray. Preachers tell us to have more faith. But what does the Bible say? That's what we will explore over the next three weeks. All adults are welcome to attend Sunday mornings at 9:20am. Room 103.
