Men and Women in the Church

Tuesday, 7:00pm, Multi-Faith Chapel - For a long, long time, men and women have struggled to understand what their unique roles are in Christianity and in the Church. Can men and women both lead in the the Church? Does God have a specific idea for how men and women are to relate in marriage? We probably won’t resolve this issue in one night, but come hear one perspective – from Jon and Kristen Douthit – on the issue and then engage in conversations and pursue your own answers.

Large Group – Christ’s Response to Doubt and Questioning

Tuesday, 7:00pm, Multi-Faith Chapel - Genuine faith in Jesus and the Way He exemplified does not come without difficult questions. Often times we may consider ourselves “faithless” for questioning in the first place, or we may think we have legitimate concerns with core Christian principles that need consideration. This week, our very own, beloved Jon Douthit will lead us in a reflection on Christ’s response to doubt in the Gospels. What do the Gospels have to tell us about God’s response to confusion, cynicism and anger we may feel at times in our faith journeys? No matter where you are in your faith life, we invite you to join us in what should be an honest, reflective encounter with God’s Word.
