Do you wrestle with the idea of God? Maybe you’re skeptical about whether God exists or can even be known. Maybe you’re looking for meaning in a world or maybe you’re simply curious about what Christianity teaches.
WEEK 1 – SEPTEMBER 24 – DOES LIFE HAVE A PURPOSE?
We were created to live in a relationship with God. Life is meaningless without God, but God gives everything meaning.
WEEK 2 – OCTOBER 01 – IS THERE A GOD?
When we are open to the possibility of God’s existence, we’ll discover there are many indicators of his presence.
WEEK 3 – OCTOBER 08 – WHY DOES GOD ALLOW PAIN AND SUFFERING?
While God does not provide the reason for each experience of pain, through Jesus, he provides a way to face suffering with hope and courage rather than bitterness and despair.
WEEK 4 – OCTOBER 15 – IS CHRISTIANITY TOO NARROW?
God provided a way for everyone to find their way back to him. Most religions boil down to humanity trying to reach God, but Christianity is about God reaching humanity.
WEEK 5 – OCTOBER 22 – IS JESUS REALLY GOD?
With intention or by default, every person answers the question, “Is Jesus really God?” The overwhelming evidence points to the truth of his divinity.
WEEK 6 – OCTOBER 29 – IS THE BIBLE RELIABLE?
The Bible can be shown to be a reliable document, accurately recorded and transmitted through history, and relevant to life in the 21st century.
WEEK 7 – NOVEMBER 05 – CAN I KNOW GOD PERSONALLY?
The way to know God is not by striving and trying harder. It’s through knowing and following Jesus.
WEEK 8 – NOVEMBER 12 – CELEBRATION SUNDAY
Join us in fasting for the lost. Pick a day and time and join us, believing for the biggest harvest to come to Christ this fall.

There is no fee or cost to participate.
