Church History for Newbies: finding our Christian roots

Many of us know about the New Testament Church. But what happened between then and our church today? Why do we believe and practice what we do? Why are there so many variations of Christianity? In this series, each week we will look at the next section of church history and then focus on a key person of that era. Hear inspiring stories of faith heroes shared by faithful guest speakers. Church art and music through history, powerful Scriptures impacting our heroes, and the faithfulness of God through history will also be featured.
