Options to Orthodoxy in the Colonies
Current Series

Between 1680 and 1760 Anglicanism and Congregationalism, an offshoot of the English Puritan movement, established themselves as the main organized denominations in the majority of the colonies. As the seventeenth and eighteenth century passed on, however, the Protestant wing of Christianity constantly gave birth to new movements, such as the Baptists, Methodists, Quakers, Unitarians and many more, sometimes referred to as “Dissenters.” There was another large group of people who believed in witchcraft, magic, and demonology. Join us for a four part series in July, as we sort out and evaluate the different religious choices of the American Colonists.

Faith of the American Presidents
Series Begins August 6th, 2017

The religious practices of our presidents, such as frequent church attendance, prayer, reading of the Bible, close relationships with some religious groups, regular use of religious rhetoric, and particular policies—all testify that their faith was important to them. Most presidents have worshipped consistently, sought divine guidance, tried to set a good example, and desired to please prospective voters. And almost all presidents have extensively used moral and biblical language to console grieving Americans, provide assurance in times of crisis, celebrate religious holidays, and to promote particular policies. Join us for a special CLASS series that examines the Christian faith of four different presidents.

Christianity in the Colonial Era
Returning this Fall: September 11th, 2017

When the first pilgrims and puritans came to the shores of Virginia and Massachusetts in the early 1600’s, they came with hope of starting new lives. Along with all of their earthly possessions, they also brought Bibles and a strong faith in Jesus Christ. As the colonies grew in size and stature they would eventually declare independence (in both word and war) from the shackles of the British Empire. Inevitably they created a brand new government and established a new system of governing that did not include a king. That happened over 240 years ago, and yet questions still haunt our minds today about how our country was established. Was the United States of America founded as a Christian country? Were documents like the Constitution and Declaration of Independence rooted in biblical thinking?  Were George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and Thomas Jefferson actually Christians?  Join us as we unlock the answers to these important questions and develop a right way of thinking about both God and our country.
