Church History

Where would any of us be apart from our families? Sometimes for better and sometimes for worse, who we are has been significantly shaped by those who have come before us. It is no different with the church. The church in the present has been shaped by its past in ways many of us are only dimly aware of. This course explores our 2,000 year past and helps us gain a better understanding of why we are where we are today.

Professors:  Joshua Brownfield
Dates:  January 15 – March 19, 2019, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Cost: $50
Books: The Parade of Faith, by Ruth Tucker
