Fundamentalism In Dallas Short-Term Class
Have you ever wondered why there seems to be a wall between different churches in Dallas? Why can’t we seem to enter into conversation with some fellow Protestants? Are our beliefs really that different? Join us for this short-term class led by Rev. Margaret Watkins, beginning Sunday at 9:30 a.m. in the Chapel. This class will explore what it means to be a fundamentalist Christian, and some of the churches in our area which might fall into that category.
