Finding God in the Pandemic

7-8 p.m.


Mondays, August 17-September 7
10-11 a.m.

Online study

As the pandemic caused by COVID-19 continues to surge and affect millions of lives around the world, many Christians have been left wondering, “Where is God to be found in the pandemic?” Some see the pandemic as God’s retribution on society; others see it as an opportunity to evangelize; and others still look at the devastation and question God’s existence, goodness, or powerfulness. This 4-week study seeks a biblical framework for understanding our times and teaches us how to lament and ultimately to trust in God. Co-led by Rev. Terri Henkel and Director of Discipleship Wes Maston.

Thursdays, August 20-October 1
