Have you ever wished you could better understand what you read in the Bible? What does it mean to trust in its authority? In this Summer Seminar, respected Bible professor and teaching pastor Mark Moore will talk about the authenticity of the Bible, how to read it for all its worth, and what it looks like to apply it to your life.
SATURDAY, JULY 16 • 10:00AM
We're not in Kansas anymore. The world is changing. And fast! In this Summer Seminar, respected pastor and author Larry Osborne will help us navigate new cultural realities so we can rightly walk through the quickly changing world we live in today.
SATURDAY, JULY 23 • 10:00AM
Our culture is deeply divided by race. Because of that, the Church has a great and transformative opportunity before it. In this Summer Seminar, Efrem Smith will guide you to discover our need and God’s plan for Christ-centered racial reconciliation and how you can leverage your life on behalf of those of another ethnicity.
SATURDAY, JULY 30 • 10:00AM
Your family, your home, and your routine … those things are comfortable. But what if you widen your view? Open your eyes and you’ll find people struggling with loneliness and depression. In this Summer Seminar, pastor Dave Stone will talk about why people matter and what it looks like to love our neighbors well.
KidCare is provided for a nominal fee at the Summer Seminars for birth through Kindergarten.
