Men's Summer Study

These are confusing times for many Christians. Traditional biblical values are not only rejected; it seems as if they're attacked on every front. It's all happened at warp speed, leaving many of us spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment? And is there any hope for the next generation?

Join Allen Burris every Wednesday evening in June at our Bedford Campus from 6-7:30 as he leads us through Bible-based conversations about how to live in our present age in a way that honors Christ. The class will use some excellent video material by Larry Osborne.

In this 5-session series, Larry introduces us to a man forced to live in a fast-changing and godless society. This man faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of a world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. That man was Daniel, and with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, he not only survived but thrived. 

Each session also includes real-life stories of people struggling to thrive in an ever-increasing godless society. Though Daniel lived thousands of years ago, he has much to teach us today.

Sign up and join other men who are on a journey to thrive!
