The Creeds and Beyond

Do you recite the Apostles’ Creed by memory and ever wonder why it talks only about Jesus’ birth and resurrection and says nothing about his ministry?
What do you think are the most important parts of Jesus’ life that could be included?
Are there other creeds in use that speak to contemporary Christian issues?
What words resonate with you about your faith?

Tuesday evenings on Zoom from 6:30 – 8:30 PM
May 11 – June 1, 2021
With an Optional 5th evening on June 15th
