Faith and Science – 2019 Summer Series

Image shows a pink colored background with stars and the words Faith and science summer eseries saundays july 7-september 1.Join us from July 7 to September 1 for our Adult Summer Series entitled Faith and Science. Throughout the summer we will be tackling a variety of topics about how faith and science work together.

This is an opportunity to be informed about different science perspectives and how Christians view these topics. The goal is to understand different perspectives and not to debate the topics discussed.

The Christian church does not have a strong history of talking about faith and science as compatible topics. A large percentage of students who leave the church after high school graduation cite “faith and science” as a reason why they left. When these students attend higher education institutions they are introduced to new concepts and ideas about science and faith. Students are often challenged to pick between faith OR science; not “faith AND science.”

We hope this series will help us navigate these topics in a way that does NOT drive people away from God. We can disagree and yet, still worship together while giving God the glory for His creation that science is revealing.

Join us on Sundays at 9 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall from July 7 through September 1, 2019 for “Faith and Science.”
