SUNDAY SUMMER NIGHT SERIES: CULTURE SHOCK
The intellectual challenges and moral confusion of our culture are multiplying rapidly. The church needs to provide clarity and understanding by way of solid biblical principles to respond reasonably in the midst of chaos. We have experts and authors who have lectured nationally and written extensively on the issues of Race, Religious Liberty, Social Justice, and Transgender. Kindred Church has structured this series to equip Christians to bring truth with relevance to their own sphere of influence.
