FAITH THAT SEES THROUGH THE CULTURE
led by Pastor French every Sunday at 10:45 a.m. in the fellowship hall

God’s Word is filled with paradoxes. It’s tempting to see these paradoxes as either-or statements—one must be true and the other must be false. End of story. Case closed. But the paradoxes in the Word of God are different. They are both-and statements, at once seeming contradictory but both being wholly and completely true. As Christians, we live in this tension, embracing that two sides of the same coin can be true at the same time. We live in what is visible and invisible. We have the old man and the new man. We speak to those offered both an inclusive and an exclusive Gospel. We are citizens of both church and state. We live in the now and the not yet. We speak a Word that is both Law and Gospel. Faith That Sees through the Culture provides lenses to evaluate and bring clarity to these paradoxes. These lenses, when focused, aligned, and coordinated, open whole new vistas for faith to see more clearly and be lived out more effectively in our culture.

ACTS: THE GOSPEL THROUGHOUT THE WORLD
led by Grace Gillespie every Sunday at 10:45 a.m. in room P206 and via Zoom

This class will discover the nature and purpose of the church as God designed it, and evaluate our own church life in the light of this discovery. “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
