Study: “Paul the Apostle – What Culture Doesn’t Want to Hear” / By: David Nasser
Where: Grace Church, Room 202
When: Thursday, Feb. 15th – Thursday Mar. 15th (once a week) at 6:00pm
Americans live in a culture that places high emphasis on entertainment, achievement and self. It’s increasingly difficult for Scriptural Truth to cut through the noise and sink into our hearts. But when we stop and study Scripture, the culture we live in faces the same problems as the early church.   This study uses the life of Paul to highlight how followers of Christ can stand up to cultural “norms” and stand firm in Christ.
