We all have questions. Sometimes the answers are easy. But, sometimes, our questions are complicated and the answers are difficult to see and even harder to articulate. Join us for worship at First United Methodist Church in January as we address some of the most frequently asked questions about the Christian faith.
- January 3 – Do miracles still happen?
- January 10 – Why and how should I read the Bible?
- January 17 – How do I know God’s will for my life?
- January 24 – Why does God allow evil and suffering?
- January 31 – What does faith have to do with politics?
