Exploring Other Religions, Confucianism

Wednesday, October 2: Confucianism by Dr. Cathy Benton

Pastor Chip Hardwick is facilitating an evening group exploring other religions, such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism. Participants will use a book (Stephen Prothero’s God is Not One) to learn about other faiths in a way that will strengthen our faith in Christ. Some sessions might include guest speakers from the other faith traditions. We will meet from 7:00 to 8:00 PM in the South Parlor. There is no need to RSVP; books will be available for purchase beginning in the meetings. The course will run through November 13; feel free to come as often as you are able.
