A Call to Worship the God of Genesis
AAA Church

Stan Hudson will present a five-part creation class:
  • On Dinosaurs and Dragons:  We are told that the “Dragon” of Revelation 12, the Devil, deceives the whole world. He has used the image of a giant reptile to confuse the world about origins.  But that needn’t be so. Come learn the truth about dinosaurs! Monday & Thursday
  • The Flood: The most devastating event the universe has ever seen was the Genesis Flood. The crust of the earth reveals much evidence to prove it happened. And Mt. St. Helens’ eruption sheds even more light on earth’s catastrophic past. Tuesday & Friday
  • The Age of the Earth: The single biggest scientific challenge to the creationism’s views on origins is the subject of how old the earth appears to be. Come learn the issues and why there is less reason to worry than one might suppose. Wednesday

Evangelism: Christ’s Methods – Christ’s Catalyst [Part 1]
Ad Building #11

With our post-modern society ever evolving, progressing, and technologically advancing, trying to keep up with the needs of this generation may seem like a daunting task. We often ask ourselves: Is the method of evangelism our church pioneers used still relevant in this generation? Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the answer is yes. The good news is we don’t need to re-invent the wheel. Christ’s method will always bring success. Come learn more with Voice of Prophecy evangelism trainer Jocelle Espeleta. Bible-based evangelism assures us that failure is not an option and will ultimately be the catalyst that ushers in the Second Coming of Christ. Continued at 2:30 pm.

A House of Prayer

CyberTheology: How Technology Is Shaping Your Faith
AAA Church Fireside Room

What does media do to your faith and worldview? If the medium is the message, then what is happening to the message of Jesus when communicated through preachers, books, Google, and social media? How is “cybertheology” shaping the way we talk to each other and experience life within our faith communities? This class with Pastor Seth Pierce explores the relationship between belief and media; covers how beliefs in the church have changed due to media; the history of organizations like Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter; and how to approach these new mediums in ways that build faith instead of destroying it. Repeated at 4 pm.
