SUMMER SEMESTER is Now in Session!
Welcome to Year 2 of our Summer Semester Series! Our congregation has a particular affinity for learning and discovery.
In that light, during the summer months, Via de Cristo intentionally shifts the nature of the Sunday messages even more toward teaching and occasionally in-the-round conversation. Focusing on awareness and insight, we invite a range of engaging guest speakers to share with us from their particular passions or domain knowledge, or in some cases, their own experience in getting to where they are now in their own always unique spiritual pilgrimage.
Please see our schedule below. (August TBD).
May 6: Pastor Steve Davis, Discussing the Question: “What Would We Do if There Were No Bible?”
May 13: Pastor Steve Davis, Discussing the Question: “I Don’t Believe in Heaven Anymore. I Used to, but I Guess I am More Concerned With the Here and Now. Help!”
