Join us this Sunday October 23 for I Believe in God... An adult ed class on the Apostles’ Creed. For centuries, Christians have recited the Apostles’ Creed as a basic summary of the faith. It may be familiar - but do we understand it? In this course we explore the truths, basic and yet incredible, that have united Christians throughout the history of the church. This course also coincides with the second year of our new children’s worship curriculum, which is also based on the Apostles’ Creed. This class takes place in the church office (130 Prospect Street).
