Friday, April 21, 2017

This Year's Topic

The Bible is the foundation for faith among followers of Christ in churches around the world. Yet many such Christians never think to ask why this is the case. After all . . .

  • How did we get this holy book?
  • Who decided what would and wouldn’t be included in it?
  • How do we know it’s true? Are there any errors in it?
  • Is it necessary? Is it sufficient? Is it authoritative for my life?
  • How can I understand it?

Even as Christians ask and answer such pivotal questions, the culture around us asks even more pressing questions: Isn’t the Bible antiquated and outdated? Isn’t it chauvinistic and offensive? Isn’t it downright deceptive and ultimately dangerous?

During this Secret Church, we will explore answers to critical questions about the Bible in order to discern what place it should (or should not) have in the lives of Christians and the implications those answers have for our lives, our families, and our churches in the culture around us.

Who can attend the Secret Church live gathering?

Anyone is welcome to join us at the live gathering; however, a ticket is required to attend.

Please note that Secret Church is recommended for ages 13+ due to the length of the study and the content discussed during the teaching sessions and prayer time. Parents should use their best judgment when deciding if younger children should attend the gathering.

Does my ticket guarantee my seat?

Yes and no. Your ticket guarantees admission to the Secret Church live gathering, but seating for Secret Church is available on a first come, first served basis. The doors will open approximately one hour prior to the start of the gathering. We generally have a full house and sometimes need to use overflow seating outside of the main worship room. If you want to choose your seat, you will need to come early!

What should I bring to the live gathering?

Many people find it helpful to bring a pen and cash for food and drinks. A study guide will be provided to you when you arrive.

Can I bring food to Secret Church?

We encourage you to eat dinner before arriving at the live gathering. Snacks will be available for purchase during the short breaks throughout the evening. Coffee and water will also be available. Outside food and drinks are not permitted.

Is childcare provided at the live gathering?

No. Due to the length of the gathering and the late dismissal time, childcare at the live gathering is not provided.

Is an offering collected during Secret Church?

Yes. You will have an opportunity during the evening to give to a special offering, which will assist persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. Participation in the offering is optional. You can watch a short video clip that shows some ways we have used the Secret Church offering here.
