Find the link on your “Week at a Glance,” email that comes out every Tuesday.

Sunday, August 2nd Science: What is True? (Part D) A careful examination of molecular biology and the fossil record demonstrates that evolution is not a “proven fact.” History shows that ideas, including Darwinism as a social philosophy, have definite consequences – consequences that can turn ugly when God is left out of the picture.

Sunday, August 9 and 16 History: Whose Story? (Part B) Does the past have an objective actuality and significance? Or does it, as postmodernist philosophy asserts, exist primarily inside our heads? This tour considers the meaning of history as God’s story and shows us why remembering is so important.

Sunday, August 23 and 30 Sociology: The Divine Imprint (Part A & B) The order we observe in the natural realm is even more apparent in the social systems God has established: family, church, community, state, labor, and the union between God and man. Life is a series of relationships that flow out of and reflect the Trinitarian nature of the Creator.

 

8am, 9:30am, and Zoom Class Topics:

NO Class on Sunday, September 6

Sunday, September 13 and 20 Topic: Unio Mystica: Am I Alone?
Is it possible for the infinite, eternal Creator to dwell within the heart of an individual? The implications of this great mystery, which represents the very core of the Christian faith, are explored at length..

Sunday, September 27 Topic: The State: Whose Law?
Of all the social spheres, the state, to which God grants the power of the sword for the punishment of evil and the preservation of the good, has the greatest potential to go awry if it oversteps its authority. The civil magistrate must always remember his place under the sovereignty of God – otherwise, havoc will ensue.

10:40am Topics:

A FRESH start of the Truth Project and a Cross + Generational class as well (it is for Middle, High Schoolers and Adults). This class will meet in the Shepherd’s Cave following Praise Worship.

NO Class on Sunday, September 6

Sunday, September 13 and 20 Topic: Veritology – What is Truth?
