Young Adult Class Begins New Study All Are Welcome

  On March 26th, the Young Adult class began a six-week study titled “The Case for Christ." It is a DVD and discussion study, based on the book written by Lee Strobel. Strobel was the Harvard trained legal editor of the Chicago Tribune-and an outspoken atheist. After he was coerced to attend a community worship service, he became convinced that a study of the life of Christ required even more due diligence than he applied to his legal writings. From his research, he uncovered the truth about Christ and was converted. This study follows his journey from atheist to pastor!   Everyone is invited to attend. Our class meet in the conference room across from the church office. We think you’ll enjoy this short study.
