Support missions locally, nationally, and internationally! All funding for Christ Community Missions comes from your faith-promise pledge and not from the general budget or offering.

“Why Christianity Is Good for Science” Trinity Fellowship lecture by Dr. Ted Davis and panel discussion, Oct. 29 at 7:00pm. How do we understand the relationship between Christianity and science? Warfare? Partnership? Dr. Davis suggests the Christian faith fill in the picture of the world coming from the sciences. Christianity, according to Dr. Davis, can help us achieve a deeper understanding of the world and how we should understand it. Biblical faith offers both a powerful motive for investigating nature and a foundation for the very possibility of scientific knowledge. Visit TFIU.org.
