  • What if Christianity were not a Religion?
    Tuesday • 7:00 pm • Tempe Sanctuary
    January 22-February 5
    There are approximately 39,000 denominations in Christianity, each of which claims to be the true Church founded by Jesus.  What if none of them fit the bill?  What would a Church based on the values and teachings of Jesus look like?  This three-session class will explore some of these questions, though no answers will be given.  It'll be chance to imagine possibilities . . . and maybe even reimagine the Church.
    For questions about the class, contact Pastor Steve
