GAP for Parents – Sunday, 4/14, 4:00-5:30

GREAT NEWS!  Confirming that we will meet this week, 4/14 and that we will be meeting in the “Game Plan Center” at Cottonwood Creek Church.

Excited to announce that we will jump a few chapters to focus on evolution this week.

Many a Christian student has felt challenged by the popular view that Darwinian evolution is “settled science”. If not prepared to deal with this, today’s anti-Christian culture appears to make a strong case for atheism. Belief in evolution is central to that case and has caused the de-conversion of countless Christians.

We will consider the following evolution topics:
– Evidence for evolution
– Evidence against evolution
– Implications of age of earth question
– Why scarecrows are more than scary

​See you Sunday at 4:00

GAP Class – We DO Have a Room THIS SUNDAY

In spite of the outrageously evil hail storm that wiped out almost all of Cottonwood’s class rooms, it appears that we will have a room this Sunday for our 4:00 to 5:30 class.  But it would be very helpful to know if you will be able to attend.  

CLICK HERE TO OPEN A 1-CLICK RSVP FORM

Stay tuned for details.   Meanwhile, don’t forget the challenge to do one or both of the following:
  1. QUESTIONS NIGHT” – Set a time, intentionally, to talk to your kids about any questions they have about God, the Bible, science, whatever.
  2. SPOT THE LIE” – When watching a movie, program or video, challenge your kids to actively and critically think about any messages that conflict with Christian values and beliefs.

CONFIRMING NO GAP CLASS TODAY 3/31

Due to the water damage to all possible rooms, we aren’t sure when we will be able to meet again at Cottonwood.  We would welcome any suggestions for a possible alternative meeting site.
Meanwhile, let’s stay engaged by sharing links to videos, podcasts, blogs and whatever.  For those who have access to Facebook, our Reasonable Faith Facebook group is a great way to share. The group name is simply, “Reasonable Faith Collin County”.  (You do have to request membership.  I’ll check daily to approve new requests.)
Sorry to miss meeting together.  But, let’s not allow the hail storm to cause us to lose focus on the purpose of our GAP class

>>> GAP Class Canceled This Sunday <<<


Due to extensive hail storm damage to Cottonwood’s classroom facilities,
we will not be able to meet this Sunday, March 31.


 

We plan to get back to normal on April 7.  Hail or no hail, we still need to do everything possible to keep our kids on God’s side by equipping them, intentionally, for the challenges they face in today’s anti-Christian culture.
Please tell other parents about our class.

Steve Lee, live – Thursday, Feb 28

It has been four years since Steve first blessed our Reasonable Faith chapter meeting with his wisdom, knowledge and wit.  You can’t teach high school and college students successfully for two decades without acquiring your full quota of all three of those qualities and Steve has earned more than his share of each.  Steve is recognized as an accomplished speaker and has been on the podium at numerous conferences, including Cottonwood Creek’s own “Truth Talks” Conference.

You don’t want to miss this presentation on one of
the most foundational of all Christian beliefs.

Aside from the Bible or a personal supernatural encounter,
why should anyone believe Jesus was resurrected?

Skeptics argue that this was at best a conspiracy or hallucination
and at worst nothing more than legend.

After all, they contend,
dead people always stay dead and supernatural events just don’t happen.

How would you respond to those objections?
Thursday, Feb 28, 6:45-8:15 PM

Cottonwood Creek Church

GAP Class February 17

Please join us this Sunday, Feb 17, as we tackle some of the most popular objections:

Young Mom, Natasha Crain, was not prepared for the troubling questions and vicious attacks on her faith.  She did something about it.  She examined the evidence in her search for truth.  Her books share her search and her conclusions.  What’s more, they give us the tools to help prepare our kids for today’s culture war.  The armor of God is essential but not sufficient.  We also have to teach our kids how to engage the enemy.  Join us Sunday afternoon for our next “lively” discussion based on Natasha’s first book.

Ministry she is very much tuned in to the impact of culture in our public schools.  She has graciously agreed to spend some time with our GAP class to share her unique perspective before we continue our discussion of the problem of suffering.
