New Fall Christian Education Offerings for Adults

Sunday Mornings at 9:00 AM beginning September 12th
“Jesus Among Other Gods”

In today’s world, filled with so many religions, the prevalence of “create-it-yourself” spirituality, and the general sense of relativism held by so many, the question of “What is truth?” is a question which is often asked by many.  With so many “versions of truth” out there, what is really true?

In a video-based study with renowned Christian Apologist, Ravi Zacharias, we will look at the “exclusive claims” of Jesus and Christianity and compare them with similar claims made by three of the world’s most followed faiths: Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam.  Pastor Art Simon and Helen Joynes will be team-leading this study.

Wednesday Evenings at 7:00 PM
beginning September 12th

“The Case for Christ”

It is often said that Jesus never claimed to be the Son of God and that this claim was a later “invention” by the Church as the Gospel accounts were written to evangelize people about this new faith.  But, can this claim stand as true?  Do the Gospels verify that Jesus is who He says He is?

Taking a video journey with former Chicago Tribune legal reporter, Lee Strobel, we will examine the evidence, following his own journey from skeptic to believer.  This study will be led by Pastor Schiebel.

End of Summer Picnic

Trinity held an end of summer picnic on August 18, 2012 for our church family, neighbors, and friends.  As always, there was good food, great fellowship, and a good time had by all.
