  • The second week of the month is “What In the World. A panel talks about​ current events and the Bible. We'll explore how our relationship with God impacts the world around us, and vice versa.
  • “Father & Son” is our third week. ​Dr. Andy Strachan and Pastor David Gosnell dive into one parable or episode from the life of Jesus. We'll see how the relationship between God the Father and God the Son can inform our relationships.
