10 Questions Christians Hope No One Asks Them (October 15, 2017 – December 17, 2017)

We live in a world where our faith is constantly being questioned. Even though faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:3), there are still certain answers we can give to people which might make them think twice about Christianity. In this study, we’ll walk through Mark Mittelberg’s book and examine various Bible passages to learn how we can best talk with people about tough issues. More importantly, we’ll discuss strategies for pointing people to their Savior Jesus. Click on the links below to see the handouts for the studies.

Daniel: Clinging to God in a Godless World (September 10, 2017 – October 8, 2017)

It’s not easy to be a Christian in today’s world. Often, it seems like the world is growing increasingly ungodly and secular. How can believers cling to God when everything around them is trying to pull them away from him? Daniel and his friends wrestled with this same question while in captivity in Babylon. In this study, we’ll see how God empowered them to keep their faith in a pagan society and learn how we can do the same. Click on the links below to see the handouts for each study.
