How do we as Christians have a loving posture toward the LGBTQ+ people in our lives while maintaining a traditional biblical position?

While this five-week study won’t answer every question, it will give handles for thinking through language, how to respond when someone comes out, and what the Bible says about homosexuality, gender dysphoria, and transitioning.

This study will meet on Sunday mornings at 10:35am in room B303 on February 4, 11, 18, 25, and March 3, and it will be led by Ashley Chesnut.
