Questioning God

Aug - Oct 2018

Do All Paths Lead To God?

Week 1 • August 19, 2018 • Dr. Gary Singleton

There are no shortage of opinions surrounding who God is, and how to get to Him. Some would say that there are many ways to earn God's favor, while Jesus made the claim that He is the only way. Could Jesus have been wrong? If He's not wrong, then what happens to those who follow different paths? ALPHA AT THE HEIGHTS We believe everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring these Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question and is designed to create open conversation. Alpha will be held on Wednesdays, starting September 12 at 6:30pm at our Creekside Campus. For more information or to volunteer as a leader, email alpha@theheights.org. To register, visit www.theheights.org/alpha. Registration closes on September 23. Have more questions? Send us an email at ask@theheights.org!
