What is faith? The text from Hebrews 11:1 defines it in this way:
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
This series focuses on the book of Hebrews, especially the eleventh chapter. The first four weeks provide a journey through the faith of the Old Testament figures, especially Noah, Abraham, Moses, and the Israelites. The fifth week brings us to Jesus, “the perfecter of our faith,” and his path to the cross.
Join us on Wednesday nights during the season of Lent to worship together. 7 p.m. in the Chapel beginning March 1, 2023
