A free, 6-week course led by Dave Hickman and Todd Noren-Hentz
Wednesdays @ 6pm, August 13th thru October 1st in Fellowship Hall Room 1
This course is intended to give you some insights into the processes by which God’s creation may have occurred. We’ll examine reasons for tensions between these two worlds, some of the great contributors to each field, and gain deeper insights into both worlds. Being a whiz in science is not needed. No text is required and read-ahead handouts will be provided.
Participants can register online or at Grace UMC. Participants can expect 30 minutes to an hour of recommended reading per week, but classes are designed to provide value to those who are unable to complete the weekly reading as well.Read More
