Can Christianity be trusted? Join us for an Apologetics Panel Discussion and Q & A to discuss common issues raised against Christianity and how they can be addressed. If you have ever tried to stand up for, or share, your Faith in public you have almost certainly received some objections and pushback. Many of the challenges to our Faith are thought out and brought sincerely and deserve fair consideration and a reasoned response. In fact, many Christians leave the Faith in part because their perfectly reasonable questions go unanswered. Join us, as we spend an evening discussing and exploring issues around the reliability of the Gospel we proclaim. Bring questions - both yours and those you have encountered.

Here's the long story. We have been having many problems with our original web provider. Eventually we just threw in the towel and went with a new provider; a fellow in our group. The site is up and running (obviously, you are reading it), but email is not set up yet.
