11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. – lunch, fellowship & hangout – CHC’s teen fellowship time has been a favorite for our families involved. This is a great opportunity to meet other local teens. Bring a sack lunch, card & board games for indoor, balls for outdoor, etc.

*About the Evangelism Course: In Living Waters “Tough Questions,” Ray Comfort, Emeal (“E.Z.”) Zwayne, and Mark Spence will not only equip you to have ready answers to the questions you’ll face but will arm you with an arsenal of valuable questions of your own. You’ll learn simple ways to help people think through their beliefs and to reason with those who may seem unreasonable. In these five sessions you’ll explore what apologetics is (and isn’t), its proper role in evangelism, the fundamentals of worldviews, and the biblical key to unlock the heart of the ungodly. Most importantly, you’ll be given tools to have life-changing conversations with friends and strangers as you share the truth of the gospel, pointing people to the only Answer they need. http://store.livingwaters.com/training-course/tough-questions.html

Discover ready answers to such questions as:

  • Who made God?
  • Why is there suffering and evil?
  • How can a loving God send someone to Hell?
  • Isn't the Bible filled with contradictions?
  • Why are Christians anti-science?
  • And much more...
