1. NO REASONABLE FAITH CHAPTER MEETING THIS MONTH! May meeting will be at Crosspoint Church in McKinney.
Because of the extensive hail damage at Cottonwood Creek, this month’s Collin County chapter meeting has been postponed. We will meet, as scheduled, on May 23 and June 27. Crosspoint Church has graciously offered to host our meetings until Cottonwood’s facilities are recovered.
2. GAP for Parents Class WILL meet Sunday, April 28 – At CROSSPOINT CHURCH in McKinney
We are grateful to Crosspoint Church for offering to host our GAP meetings until Cottonwood is back to normal. For more information on this new location, go to rfcctx.com/gap. The topic this week is one you won’t want to miss. What do you say when your student comes home and tells you that God condones rape and slavery and cites some more than troubling scripture to prove it?
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
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
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.

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.
*** GAP for Parents Class ***
We WILL MEET THIS Sunday, March 10
The topics in section 3 of KYKOGS address the single most important question for every person on this planet. Is Jesus the miraculously resurrected Son of God?
“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” – C S Lewis
NO MEETING MARCH 17, but we will meet March 24.
More info: rfcctx.com/gap
GAP Class Schedule:
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.
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?
