We recognize that belief is hard and that it is worth acknowledging and wrestling with the questions, doubts, objections and skepticism around the Christian faith. We welcome both believers and skeptics to process their doubts and beliefs with the recognition that it is not sufficient to hold doubts or beliefs just because we inherited them. If you are interested in processing your doubts and beliefs or exploring Christianity, we welcome you to visit us on Sundays, at one of our events, or in one of our discussion groups.
Are you someone exploring Christianity and interested in discussing the topics that were covered in Questioning Christianity? Join an eight-week small group discussion for seekers, skeptics and those who don’t consider themselves Christian.
Questioning Christianity Groups will be peer-led discussion groups hosted in people’s apartments in various neighborhoods around Manhattan. They will explore topics found in Tim’s book, The Reason For God. Topics include the problem of evil, science and faith and the exclusivity of Christianity, the history of the church and Christians, and the credibility of the Bible.
For those of you who know someone who is exploring Christianity, we invite you to bring them to a discussion group to process the claims of Jesus together.
We would love to hear your questions. There are church officers available after each worship service on Sundays to hear your objections, help process questions together, or connect you with resources in our church. To find a service that fits your schedule, see our congregations: Downtown, East Side, West Side, or Lincoln Square.
The West Side Café is an open space for seekers, skeptics and those considering Christianity to engage with and process the Christian faith. The WS Café meets weekly at 7 p.m. W83 Ministry Center (150 W 83 St.) in Room 406. Each week will involve a short presentation and discussion addressing topics of interest and claims of the Christian faith.
Open Forums are lecture-based events with an extensive Q&A that allows us to process the gospel through a different lens.
We do not have any events scheduled at this time. Check back for upcoming dates.
