Tuesdays 10:00-11:00am, Oct. 20th to Dec. 8th

Wednesdays 6:00-7:00pm, Oct. 21st to Dec. 9th

We live in a skeptical age. People express doubts about Christian faith in our complex world. Join us for this thought provoking 7 week study led by Rev. Zack Martin.

Topics we’ll consider are: Can only one religion be true? Why is there suffering and evil? How can I believe in science and creation? Are marriage, sex, and family life religious issues? And more! Contact zack.martin@crossroadsumc.net for more information.
