“Raising Defenders” Zoom Every Sunday at 9:00

Our kids are swimming in an ocean of lies and they don’t even know it.   Our life group is dedicated to helping each of us to do our part in “Raising Defenders”.

Join us each Sunday at 9:30 AM as our “Raising Defenders” life group ‘splits the fairway’ with Christian truth and then ‘tees it up’ for Cottonwood’s 11:00 AM service.

This Thursday: NASA Engineer Assesses Darwinian Evolution – RF Chapter Meeting

 

Darwin was right!!!

     … about a lot of things, like the ability of finches to adapt to climate change.
But Darwin​ was dead wrong, or simply ignorant, in other ways; like the inability of an unguided series of mutations to ‘engineer’ highly complex new life forms.
Join us Thursday evening as Cathryn Buse looks at Darwinian evolution through the eyes of a
NASA systems engineer.   CLICK HERE to receive an email with Zoom meeting info for this Thursday evening meeting.
​ (Don’t confuse this with Cathryn’s book club which meets on Tuesday evenings.  CLICK HERE for more info on the Tuesday book study series.) ​
​”See” you Thursday evening, May 21, at 6:45 for this special Reasonable Faith chapter meeting.

Classic Hymn’s call to Apologetics

Following Cathryn’s book study this past Tuesday, the words of this hymn kept running through my mind.  Join us next Tuesday as Cathryn continues to build the cumulative case for the existence of this perfectly Holy God, because our culture argues that there is “no evidence” that God even exists!
Meanwhile, take a few quiet moments to read and meditate on these lyrics.

 

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see
,*

only thou art holy; there is none beside thee
perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

* These lines tell us why apologetics is necessary.  We are commanded to love God with our minds, to study the evidence in creation and to be prepared to stand firm in a God-defying, God-denying culture.
