Adult Seminar: June 10, 17, & 24
From Bubble to Bridge: Educating Christians for a Multi-faith World
For three weeks in June, Dr. Sara Shady, a professor at Bethel University, will equip us to build better relationships with our neighbors, friends, and coworkers (Our High-5). As believers, it is easy and in some ways natural to isolate ourselves within a Christian “bubble.” And yet, we also recognize as a church that God has called us to reach those he has put in our lives.
This is a great opportunity and we hope you will join us. The seminar will be offered both hours in room 103. Learn more about Dr. Shady’s book, “From Bubble to Bridge: Educating Christians for a Multi-faith World”, on Amazon.
