KSM Update

KSM October Series

No two worlds seem further apart than the worlds of science and faith. In fact, sometimes the two seem so far apart that it feels like we have to pick a side. But are science and faith really as far from each other as we've been led to believe? In this series, we'll discover that the more we learn about the way the world works, the more we'll learn about the One behind it all.

WEEK 1: Science and faith can exist in the same space.
WEEK 2: You can trust someone before you know everything.
WEEK 3: Build your faith on what matters most.
