Contemporary Issues and Biblical Teaching

Surveys unfortunately remind us that many Christians lack a Biblical Worldview where life decisions and guidance are dependent on the words of the Bible.  Barraged by contemporary media and secular commentary, our views on divisive social issues suffers.  Join us for this series of discussions on covenant marriage, the challenge of Islam, the suffering of addiction, and our Christian roles in reconciliation and forgiveness and love without compromising the standards outlined in God's Word.

Led by Rev. Dr. David H. Grissom, Fred Carlson, and others TBA.

The Saint Alban's Anglican Adult Education Mission Statement:

Ephesians 4:11-14a "And He gave...teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine..."
