Toward Being Vigorous Christians

in a Challenging World

facilitated by Burt Waller

Sunday School Handouts

Toward Being Vigorous Christians in a Challenging World is a particularly relevant topic in today’s rapidly changing American culture.  As recently as 1990, only 5% of Americans self-identified as non-religious.  By the 2010s, that number grew to 23% of all adults and 34% of adults under 30. This study will use scripture passages from Hebrews as the basis of looking at topics such as faith through obedience; moving toward obedience; encouraging others; and faithfulness/faithful living. We will use weekly readings and study questions to focus group discussion on the messages from Hebrews and their relevance in a rapidly secularizing society.

This seven-week study and discussion relies derived from materials originally published in  HEBREWS: A CALL FOR RIGOROUS FAITHFULNESS.
