Beginning in January 2019, we’ll be exploring some tough questions about God, the Bible, suffering, and related topics through a series of sermons and discussion groups. The series is called Explore God. 

Explore God is a unique effort to encourage people in the greater Chicago area to do just that: explore God. We all wonder, and we all have questions about God. Explore God is an opportunity to explore these big questions in an open and authentic way.

Through the series and other events, we will explore some of the most common questions people have about God and faith — questions like, “Is there a God?” “Is the Bible Reliable?” and “Why does God allow pain and suffering?” This unified effort is an open invitation for anyone to participate, regardless of their spiritual background.

THE 7 BIG QUESTIONS

You're invited to join us as we embark on an important series of messages called The 7 Big Questions. We'll look at the questions we all ask about God, what it means to have faith, why suffering exists, and our purpose in life. Everyone is welcome. Come explore with us.

DISCUSSION GROUP GUIDE OVERVIEW

DISCUSSION GROUPS

Explore God Discussion Groups are designed to create a safe environment where group members can seek credible answers to challenging spiritual questions. These groups discuss some of the most popular questions people have about God, faith, religion and the Bible. Some of the questions that we explore include questions like, does life have a purpose, is there a God, and why does God allow pain and suffering?

Explore God is designed to be a resource for everyone. None of us have it all figured out and these questions around God are arguably some of the most important questions we should all explore. Everyone is invited and there is no cost to attend, so join us as we explore God together!
