Our Sept social event will be later this month, so keep an eye out for information on it! Want to know more about us? Look us up on Facebook or e-mail us at Christianity and World Religions is a six-week study that explores four major world religions — Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism — and compares the beliefs of each with those of Christianity. This study deals with questions people ask about other religions, including why we should believe the claims of Christianity over those of other faiths. The author urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel. Join us for this compelling study on Wednesday evenings this fall from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in Room 9, beginning Wednesday, September 19th .
