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.
Don’t miss Frank Turek at UTD this Thursday evening, March 28.
Starts at 8:00 PM, location and parking guidance as follows.
“Thursday March 28 @8pm in SLC 2.303 Here is a campus map for UT Dallas. The SLC building is at grid location F-6 on the map and room 2.303 is in the northeastern corner of the building on the second floor. I recommend parking in the garage labelled PS4, which is due north of the SLC building. Just park in a numbered spot and pay at a meter as you’re walking out of the garage.”
Frank will also be one of the headline speakers at the reTHINK Student Conference this weekend, March 29 and 30. Every Christian student, ages 10-22 needs to attend this great event at Cottonwood Creek Church.
Also, you should save the date, Thursday, April 25, 6:45 PM, for our next Reasonable Faith chapter meeting at Cottonwood Creek Church – a very special event. More info to follow.
We will be meeting every Sunday through May 19 (with exceptions – no meeting March 17 and 24). We can continue the class after this KYKOGS series if, as a group, we choose to keep this class going. There are plenty of other great books and curricula to study.
This Sunday’s GAP Class:
Meeting as usual at 4:00. We will do chapters 10, 11, 14 & 15 and will get into the Part 3 chapters as time permits.
Steve Lee meeting:
Thanks to everyone who made it out to our meeting with Steve Lee. What a great presentation on the evidence that the resurrection is the only reasonable explanation of the historic facts. Steve will be back, with a different topic, in August.
Parents are rarely aware of this worldwide threat but it seems that grade school and middle school kids know all about it! The Axis Culture Translator site has published a great briefing on this subject. AXIS Update on the “Momo Challenge” – Click Here
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.
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.
Gale Carter will visit our GAP class this week, Feb 10. As founder and CEO of the D.O.L.L.S. 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.
If you want to better understand what’s going on inside today’s schools, please do not miss this week’s GAP meeting.
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?
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.
1. Free “GAP” classes for parents will be starting Sunday afternoon, January 13, 4:00-5:30, at Cottonwood Creek Church in Allen. This class is based on Natasha Crain’s book, Keeping Your Kids On God’s Side. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
2. ReTHINK Student Conference, March 29 & 30, also at Cottonwood Creek Church, Allen.
