First Things First: “But I Believe in Science”
Big Idea: Faith and Science.
Reflect on the message
On Sunday, pastor Zach spoke on the topic of Faith and Science. As we go through the Gospel of Luke we will read many eyewitness testimonies of miracles like supernatural physical healing, angels appearing, and Jesus being raised from the dead. Many people have objections to the Gospel accounts because of the miracles. We're taking a week to address this roadblock and hope it will be helpful to you.
Start with prayer in asking Holy Spirit to teach us from His word and one another.
Read Luke 1:5-12
