David Hanson will lead an introductory Christian Apologetics course Thursday evenings, beginning June 4, 6-7 pm Pacific

Here is the course description:

Our society tosses around the term apologetics without much deep thought about what it actually is or how to properly do apologetics. I truly believe that Jesus calls us to engage in apologetics by developing a unique robust intellectual account of our Christian faith to share with those who are open to it. As Peter encourages to do in 1 Peter 3:15,

“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…”

So, I invite you to join me in an eight week course learning about Christian apologetics in order to discover the wealth of knowledge that God has revealed to us. In our lessons we will be learning about the following questions:
● What is Apologetics?
● What difference does it make if God exists?
● Why does anything at all exist?
● Why did the universe begin?
● Why is the universe fine-tuned for life?
● Can we be good without God?
● How could a good God allow suffering?
● And more!

Classes will be held online from 6:00 – 7:00 PM on Thursday each week. Our first session will be on June 4th.

Gathering Together

Dear Friends,

Tuesday, the Church Council has approved the opportunity for us to gather for worship at LIFEhouse…this Pentecost Sunday! You are invited to join us May 31 at 10 AM, in the sanctuary.

I have posted highlights from the CDC guidelines for churches. Just put this link in your browser  https://1l.ink/2HNS68S.  You may use these as a guide. We are all adults, and I’m sure you will make appropriate decisions for you and your family.

We do encourage you to wear a mask. Please don’t attend if you are sick or in any of the at-risk categories. We will continue to have live worship online for those who chose to stay home. We are one worshiping community, both online and on campus!

I continue to thank God for everyone who makes it possible for us to connect with each other online, especially those who have participated to bring worship into our homes. We have all been blessed by the giving of so much time and the using of God’s gifts by our brothers and sisters who have kept us gathered together in worship and praise. This is a blessing of enormous impact!

I also continue to thank God for those who are faithfully and joyfully giving their financial support of His mission here. God calls us to be generous “in season and out” and so many have answered this call! God considers our faithful giving as a sign of our trust that He will provide.

Love and Joy!

Pastor Dana

Recently, folks have done a lot of shaming and spewing contempt. When Christians do this it’s not good news we are sharing.

If I’m caught up in attacking those I consider my enemies I end up creating an even bigger enemy…myself
