It took about 300 years for the leaders of the early church to formally wrestle with a question causing wide-spread disputes: "Who Was Jesus?" The age of the Apostles had passed. No one was left who physically had met Jesus of Nazareth. Was he a man who embodied the Spirit of God? Was he the pre-existent "Word" the Gospel of John mentions; the "Word" that was in the beginning with God? What does it mean to say "Jesus is the Son of God?" How do you view Jesus: human, divine, or a combination of the two? It all came to a head in the 4th century of the Common Era. Our Bible Study class will explore that discussion (debate) on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Come, join us.

ATTENTION ALL GRADUATES! GRADUATION SUNDAY IS MAY 19th If you are graduating from high school or college or if you are receiving an advanced degree, please notify the church office as soon as possible.
