Join the conversation this January as you "Explore God" at churches of all denominations, all around the Chicago suburbs. In partnership with over 1,000 other churches around the Chicago area, the seven-week sermon series begins Jan. 12-13.

"Explore God" is more than a sermons series. It is also an invitation to our friends and neighbors to ask questions, to join a conversation, and to grow in your understanding of God.


The questions include:

• Jan. 12-13: "Does Life Have a Purpose?"

• Jan. 19-20: "Is There at God? How Can I Know?"

• Jan. 26-27: "Why Does God Allow Pain and Suffering?"

• Feb. 2-3: "Is Christianity Too Narrow?"

• Feb. 9-10: "Is Jesus Really God?"

• Feb. 16-17: "Is the Bible Reliable?"

• Feb. 22-23: "Can I Know God, Personally?"
