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?

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.

GAP Class for Parents This Sunday, Feb 10, 4:00-5:30

Join like minded parents (and grandparents) this Sunday afternoon at Cottonwood as we ask why God allows so much evil and suffering.  The critic will say, “Either God isn’t all powerful and can’t relieve suffering, … or God isn’t all loving and doestn’t care enough to intervene.”   How should we respond when we hear that kind of criticism?

So Many Great Opportunities in the New Year

Are we doing enough to prepare our kids for today’s vicious attacks o.n Christianity?
The good news is that there are more ways to equip ourselves and our kids to withstand today’s version of spiritual warfare, more resources and opportunities, than ever before.
Right here in North Texas, we have some great new opportunities to put on the full armor of God.  Here are just a couple.

TruthTALKS Class

🔥 Today’s Hottest Issue? 🔥


Join us this Sunday afternoon as we tackle what is perhaps today’s most contentious issue. Christians are attacked and ridiculed for being “radical”, hateful, intolerant, homophobic, transphobic, bigoted and hypocritical.

What is the true Biblical view on this issue and how should we respond when questioned or criticized?

Join us as we consider the core issues and then develop a practical strategy for handling questions from our kids as well as ridicule in the public square.

We will consider multiple points of view, but the ultimate question is: WWJD?
