New Sermon Series: Questions and Answers

Beginning the first Sunday in October, I am pleased to announce my new sermon series Questions and Answers. I am promoting this a little early so that people who may visit our church in the next couple of weeks can know what we are studying. This series is a lifetime (well, at least a 16-year career) worth of common questions that people have asked me over the years...with Biblical answers to the questions. It is an eight-week series, and the questions to consider are: Can I Trust the Bible?, Why Is Salvation Important?, Can I Lose My Salvation?, Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?, If I’m Good, Then God Will Bless Me, Right?, What in the World is Going On?, Will God Give Me More than I Can Handle?, and On What Day Will the World End? Great opportunities  to invite people who have asked you the same questions!
