COFFEE AND CONTROVERSY

NOW - NOVEMBER 21 @ 10:20AM

Few things are more relaxing than a cup of coffee, and few things are more disturbing than the

latest controversy in our society. Let's come together to enjoy a great beverage while we examine

the controversies through the lens of God's word, reason, experience, and Christian tradition. 


The class will be an opportunity to explore timely issues in a safe way as we model how

Christians understand, share and live the truth of the Gospel. We will meet starting on

July 11 at the Shiloh Cafe 15 minutes after worship or about 10:20am. 

Class Rules

1. Our relationship with God through Jesus comes first.
2. What we do matters as the Spirit works to make us like Christ.
3. The Bible guides us in belief and action. 
4. There is a power to discern God's will among the people of God.
5. Christians can disagree without being disagreeable.
