( Secret Church )

When we think of “church” in America, we think of going to meet at a building, singing, praying, and hearing a message from a pastor or teacher. But in many places around the world, “church” meets in a home, an apartment, and sometimes even in secret. Many times there are just a few believers who know and follow Christ. These small groups of Christ-followers often meet for many hours in study, prayer, and fellowship. Sometimes they face great difficulties to meet together. In some places it may even be dangerous to gather as a church to worship, pray, and study the Word. So when they come together, they want to make the most of their time together.

Secret Church is our version of “house church” where we meet periodically for an intense time of Bible study—lasting 6+ hours—including a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who still have not heard the gospel. This is not for the uncommitted or faint at heart. But if you desire to know God more deeply through His Word and know His church more fully around the world, then please join us for Secret Church.

The cost for the event is $10 which includes the book along with snacks during the break time. Please note that childcare will not be provided during this event.

SCRIPTURE AND AUTHORITY IN AN AGE OF SKEPTICISM

FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2017

6:30PM-12:30AM 

This Year’s Topic: 

The Bible is the foundation for faith among followers of Christ in churches around the world. Yet many such Christians never think to ask why this is the case. After all . . .

How did we get this holy book?
Who decided what would and wouldn’t be included in it?
How do we know it’s true? Are there any errors in it?
Is it necessary? Is it sufficient? Is it authoritative for my life?
How can I understand it?
Even as Christians ask and answer such pivotal questions, the culture around us asks even more pressing questions: Isn’t the Bible antiquated and outdated? Isn’t it chauvinistic and offensive? Isn’t it downright deceptive and ultimately dangerous?

During this Secret Church, we will explore answers to critical questions about the Bible in order to discern what place it should (or should not) have in the lives of Christians and the implications those answers have for our lives, our families, and our churches in the culture around us.
