Chestnut Ridge Church
Relevant—Part 2
Rel•e•vant (adjective) -having a bearing on or connection with the matter at hand -meaningful or purposeful in current society or culture Is the church still relevant today? That’s a fair question. Here’s another: in the face of rapid societal change and unprecedented challenge, does the church have anything to say or contribute to the world that is meaningful and helpful? A lot of people would say “no”—church is old-fashioned and irrelevant to real life. What do you think? Tune in to the series, Relevant, as we see how the message, methods, and ministry of The Ridge is more relevant today than ever before.
