Bible study

We have resumed in-person Bible study on Sunday mornings from 9:30 - 10:15 am.  We will continue to offer an option to join virtually via Zoom if you desire.


First, Zoom provides a how-to video that walks you through the step-by-step process of what you will need to join.


Second, members of Redeemer received a reoccurring link via email to join the Bible study.  If you did not receive the link and would like to participate, please email us and we can send it to you.


Finally, materials and handouts will be posted below for each session.  Please download them in advance of each session.

    October 31: theistic evolution

    Science and religion debates have embroiled American Christianity over the last few decades.  In any debate, it's easy for each side to be dismissive of the other.  This study will look at theistic evolution, a common teaching in American Christianity that states God used the process of macroevolution in some way to create the universe.  It will largely depend on primary source quotations that lets participants hear proponents of theistic evolution in their own words.


    Today we introduce the whole field of study by looking at some key denominations and individuals who have supported theistic evolution.  Our goal is to discuss the approach that is needed to have respectful, productive conversations on the topic.
