In the words of R.C. Sproul, "everyone's a theologian." Theology is simply what one believes about God. So the question we have to ask ourselves as Christians isn't whether or not theology is "for us," but how faithful our theology is to the truth of God in Scripture.
With that in view, we are thrilled as a church to prioritize the pursuit of theology in community with gatherings on Wednesday afternoon (3:30pm) and Thursday evening (6:30pm.) As a church, we deeply value this opportunity to learn together and grow in greater maturity as we think and talk through the most important things together. This is an "everyone" discipleship opportunity, so we have a mix of brand new and seasoned believers, men and women, 20-somethings and 60-somethings, etc. It's one of the most looked-forward to times on the calendar for many people throughout the week.
In 2019, we began a series on the theological discipline of Biblical Theology. Because the Bible is a whole book written by one ultimate Author, we are spending this season focusing on the major themes and threads that tie the whole Bible together and give us a better understanding of the big picture of Scripture. (Pastor Chris is using books by James Hamilton and Graeme Goldsworthy, pictured below, and would encourage anyone thinking about attending to pick up a copy of both if you're able.)
