Morning/Wednesday Night Worship Summer 2017 Series Wed, 21 Jun 2017 09:00:14 +0000 Sunday Morning

Believers were asked, “What one question have you heard some of your unbelieving friends asking?”  Below are the questions that will be answered in our Sunday morning sermon series. Pastor Fernandez

Series: My Friends are Asking

June 25 – “How can you believe something that is not real or that you cannot see?”

July 9 – “Why doesn’t God care about people’s suffering?”

July 30 – “Why do you think that God is real and other gods/religions are not?”

August 6 – “How can we trust that the ‘intelligent force that created the world’ is the God of the Bible and not just some disconnected being (like the deists believe)?”

Wednesday Night

The results of a recent survey are compiled. When believers were asked if there was one question that seems to be a struggle for you, what would it be? They responded, and those questions/responses will be part of our summer series on Wednesday evenings. Below is the schedule. Pastor Fernandez

Series: Questions from Struggling Believers

June 28, 2017 – “How can I live the life Jesus wants me to live if I am not perfect?”

July 12, 2017 – “Why doesn’t God answer my prayers?”

August 2, 2017 – “Why don’t other Christians act like they ought to? Aren’t they a Christian like me?”

August 23, 2017 – “How do you know that God is real?”

August 30, 2017 – “How do I practically, accurately, and appropriately apply what I read in the Bible in everyday life?”

September 6, 2017 – “Why does church membership matter?”
