What do Christians believe about Jesus and God? What do Christians believe about sexuality and homosexual practice? Why are there so many varieties of churches? How did they get the Bible?
On Wednesday nights this summer, Evangelical Baptist Church is providing the Lakes Region community an educational opportunity called "The Big 8: the Eight Most Important Things Everyone Needs to Know about God, the Bible, and the Church."
The series will be held on Wednesdays from 7-8:15 p.m.
The Big 8 is a 60-minute lecture followed by 15 minutes Q&A. Everyone is welcome to attend, whatever religious background you have. Pastors and laymen who all have formal training in theology and the Bible will teach the sessions. There is no need to sign up, just show up. Refreshments and childcare (under 5 years old) will be provided.
