Why Thinking Matters to our Kids
A practical four part strategy to get our kids engaging culture through worldview and apologetics
by Rodney Lake
Why is Christian Apologetics so important in the discipleship of our kids? Why are so many of our young Christians not sharing their faith with others – or even walking away altogether? In this talk Rodney examines the role apologetics and worldview training has in preparing our kids for adulthood and presents a practical four part strategy for getting them intellectually engaged in their faith and culture.
Recommended for Parents, Youth Leaders, Christian Educators and Home-schoolers.
7:00-9:00pm – FRIDAY 24th February 2017
Two Presentations on Science and God:
The Scientific and Philosophical Evidence for the Existence of God
by Rodney Lake
Everything that begins to exist has a cause – including the universe itself. So is there any scientific or philosophical evidence for a creator as a cause of the universe? In this presentation Rodney examines the nature of the first cause and looks at the evidence a divine supernatural agent was at work.
What does Science have to say about God?
by Bruce Fraser
Rising from the dead, miraculous healing and angels are worlds apart from equations, composite materials and silicon chips – yet still so many people cling to faith. Is it possible for someone who values science to embrace belief in God or is science crafting God’s coffin?
WHERE: Rutland Street Church, 12 Rutland St, St Albans, Christchurch
COST: Free – no registration necessary
