Exploring The Christian Faith At Faith

They are the fundamental questions asked by any journalist: Who, what, when, where and why?

Those 5 W’s will provide the basis for an exploration of the Christian faith, beginning Saturday, March 3, at Faith Lakewood, at the corner of Hilliard and Woodward in southwest Lakewood.

In five sessions, we will examine the roots of Christianity in the world’s broader search for meaning and understanding and explore the development of basic Christian principles and practices and how they do – or don’t – have relevance for today.

“The 5 W’s: A Guide to the Christian Faith” is not a canned Bible study or an off-the-shelf program offered by a denominational organization or mega-church. It is questions and discussion for people interested in exploring spirituality and faith.

I’ve developed the sessions as a former daily newspaper reporter and editor who became the pastor at Faith Lutheran Church last fall. “Faith Lakewood” is the congregation’s community connection effort.

The sessions will begin at 5:30 p.m. on five consecutive Saturdays, beginning March 3. The format will include 45 minutes of presentation and discussion, a short break for a simple meal, and another 30 minutes of discussion – out by 7 or 7:30 p.m.

Please register in advance by calling 216-226-6500 or e-mail office@faithlakewood.org and include your name and phone number. If you need childcare, let us know.

Faith is located at 16511 Hilliard Road and you can find us on Facebook under “Faith Lakewood” or on the web at www.faithlakewood.org.
