The Company UWS Men’s Breakfast
Led by Danny Best and Reed Dodenhoff
Fridays, 7:30 AM, Upper West Side
Men Only – The Company

 

Have you ever felt it difficult to explain your Christian beliefs to a Skeptic? Join us for a deep dive into “common questions” and “skepticisms” surrounding our faith. Through the examination of Dr. Gregory Boyd’s “Letters From a Skeptic” we will unpack common objections to Christianity and equip ourselves with intellectual and spiritual tools to help us better interact with those skeptical of Christianity.

Inspired – Learning to Love the Bible
Led by Brianna Barnes
Thursdays, 2:00 PM, Washington Heights
Open to All

 

If the Bible isn’t a science book, instruction manual, or position paper, then what is it? This group invites readers on a journey of rediscovery as we explore the Bible – the miracles, the messy parts, and the stuff that doesn’t make sense – using the book, “Inspired” by Rachel Held Evans. Let’s fall in love with Scripture all over again without checking our intellect or imaginations at the door.

Freelance Friends
