During the Season of Epiphany (January 13 – February 24) St. Matthew will be participating in Explore God Chicago 2019 by offering a special sermon series during these dates.
This weekend in the worship services the message series will be asking the question “Is there a God?” This topic has proven to be a particularly exciting one to explore with skeptics. But even believers can sometimes experience moments of doubt about God’s existence.
This Sunday you'll have an opportunity to join in the discussion!
At 9:20 Pastor Blonski will be hosting an Explore God discussion group.
The topic this Sunday will be "Is There a God?"
A discussion group is also forming in the Wauconda area. Hosted by Chuck Lintner in his home, you'll have the opportunity to invite a friend that might not be comfortable coming to a church but still has questions about God. His group will meet on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.
