Science and Faith Series


When:  Sundays > 12:45–2 p.m. (also happening at 10 a.m. during the Grow Hour with different topics, including, "A Scientific Look at Genesis Chapter 1")

Fall Series begins Sunday, September 9

Where: DC102

Do you have questions about how science and the Bible interact? The Science & Faith Series will take a scientific look at the Bible, the existence of God, and theological concepts. Join us for an informative and interactive class for both Christians and those considering faith!

This is not a Bible Study that looks at theological aspects of scripture, but rather examines the scientific credibility of Biblical statements on creation and nature. This series deals with the often-asked questions, “What does science say about the existence of God,” and, “If there is a God, who might that God be?” The existence question will be touched upon, but more focus will be on what science can tell us about the credibility of considering the Bible in one’s journey through life. This study is open to the full spectrum of spiritual beliefs from Christian to atheist and those of other faiths or viewpoints. The meetings are neutral ground for a free discussion of ideas. All that is required is an open mind and a respect for the opinions of others. You do not need a science background to attend as the series is geared for a general audience, but in-depth enough to be informative for those holding advanced science degrees. The format will be a 45-minute lecture, followed by discussion and then time to socialize with others interested in the implications science and logic have on spirituality.
