Apologetics

Sunday 9:30 a.m.

The term ‘Christian apologetics’ doesn’t refer to apologizing (or saying ‘sorry’) for being a Christian. It comes from the Greek word ?πολογ?α (apología) meaning defense. Christian apologetics is the reasoned defense of the Christian faith against objections, but also includes the setting forth of positive grounds for Christianity. (creation.com) Come join us as we dig into the Word to help us “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” (1 Peter 3:15)

Fruit of the Spirit: Patience

Monday 7:00 p.m.
Women
Fireside Room
Margie Erickson
 
Love, joy, and peace are fruits of the Spirit most often thought of by Christians. Less frequently do we think of patience or perseverance as a fruit of the Spirit because this fruit is not pleasant to bear. Lynn Stanley has written a study that is both scriptural and timely. We live in an instant society. “Fruit of the Spirit is… Patience” gives us principles that will help us understand biblically and practically why God allows trials in the lives of His children, and how problems can enhance the work He is trying to accomplish in us.
