REASONABLE ANSWERS

At Somers Baptist Church, we want you to think through the big issues of life and to question those things that you don’t understand, agree with, or find hard to believe. And we don’t just want or encourage this kind of inquiry…we’d love to provide the setting and some direction for spiritual exploration.

Our deep conviction is that God’s word, the bible, is truly a “lamp to our feet,” shedding light to navigate both timeless philosophical questions and the practical issues of daily life. We would love to introduce you to the helpful wisdom of God’s word via a multi-week bible study. We call these various studies “Reasonable Answers” because – even though we believe the subject matter is urgently important – we’re committed to teaching that’s calm, clear, thoughtful, down-to-earth, and conversational…Reasonable.

1-1


Meet one-on-one with an experienced teacher. Various impromptu bible studies ranging from 3-8 weeks. Meet in a coffee shop, at home, over zoom, or at Somers Baptist Church.

LIFE 101


If God is in control, why is there so much that’s bad out there? How can I stop being afraid of dying? Why do Christians make such a big deal about sex? What exactly did Jesus accomplish? Isn’t faith just an excuse to not deal with the actual data? Precisely what does it mean to forgive someone? What does spirituality have to do with getting wealthy? How do I decide what to do with my life? Is ‘sin’ still a valid concept in the 21 st century? ETC

Five times throughout the year SBC holds Life 101, an hour-long class over three weeks for people who are looking for discussion around, and answers to, the kinds of questions listed above. The setting of this class is relaxed: we limit the group size, we meet in a comfortable room of chairs and couches, on hand are snacks and drinks, and, yes, discussion is how the class
proceeds.

Gods Big Picture

CHRISTIANITY 101


If you are interested in going deeper into the STORY of God and the world that the bible is telling, sign up for Christianity 101. This is an 1.5 hour class that meets over eight-weeks…and includes reading homework (gasp) from the bible and this book:

You’ll come out the other side with a much better grasp on what the entire bible is all about. Isn’t that something worth looking into at least once in your life?

As with all our “Reasonable Answer” classes, the setting is casual and food will be on hand.
