Wednesday Night Elective: Why We Believe the Bible

Join us on Wednesday evenings in the Auditorium from September 20 to October 11, 6:00 to 7:15 PM, as Dr. Jim Estep from Lincoln Christian University teaches a 4-week elective on Why We Believe the Bible.

Dr. Estep will unpack topics like the uniqueness and relevance of the Bible, how we got the Bible, and the Bible and history. If you have ever wondered how the Bible compares to other ancient religious texts and whether the teachings of the Bible can speak into our lives today, this course will help and encourage you.

Registration is required for KidCare (ages birth through 2nd grade). For kids in 3rd grade and above, check out Kids and Student Group opportunities at
