The skepticism of our times grows increasingly hostile towards the Christian faith. Many respond with silence but we are called to give a reason for the hope that is in us. To that end we invite you to join us at Limerick Chapel for our exciting Fall Conference Roots: Confidence in the Foundation of Our Faith from October 13th-16th. Together we will explore the trustworthiness of the Christian faith handed down to us in the Bible. As we survey some of the most common questions and doubts advanced against the Christian faith we will find that the foundation of our faith is secure in God’s Word. This is a conference you are not going to want to miss whether you are a long-time Christian or a skeptic! Look below for more information regarding this exciting conference and the topics that will be discussed.

Question: What can I expect from the Conference?
Beyond the exceptional teaching of Doug Finkbeiner from the Bible, we hope to provide you with some good solid resources to help equip you to face the challenges, complexities, and questions we all face.
Question: How is this conference being paid for?
This conference is the product of the generosity of Limerick Chapel. There will be, however, opportunity in a few of the sessions to thank Doug Finkbeiner for his effort and diligence in serving us with an offering.
Question: Will there be Childcare?
It is our joy to provide loving, structured, and secure childcare for children up to the fourth grade. Guidance to the class of each age group will be available at the welcome center in the church lobby. Teens are encouraged to join in the service with the adults since these questions are important for them as well.
Security Note: Pick up of children from their class must be done by the same parent or by someone previously designated by the parent.
Question: How can I get my question(s) answered?
There are several ways you will be able to ask your question. Sunday morning at 9:00 AM we will be having a panel discussion in which everyone can participate and ask any question they like. If you are not able to join us at that time there are two more ways. There will be a question box in the welcome center where you can drop off any question you like. We will try to work our way through these questions throughout the conference. If neither one of these is possible feel free to stop and ask our speaker Doug Finkbeiner or one of the Pastors. We would love to answer any questions you have!
