Islam focus of church classes

A local church will be offering a look at Islam during a series of classes from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. Wednesday nights in January and February.

Brest Westbrook with Crescent Project will lead The Bridges Study at Brownstown Christian Church, 703 W. Spring St., Brownstown.

The study is designed to equip believers to share their Christian beliefs with their Muslim neighbors with compassion and understanding, according to a news release from the church. Participants will learn to bridge the gospel, understand the New Testament’s credibility, explain Jesus’ sacrifice and more. Through real-life stories, interviews and practical teaching, the study is designed to clear up the confusion surrounding Islam and help people see Muslims as Jesus sees them.

Classes are free, however, workbooks are encouraged and may be purchased at the door for $15. Preregistration is preferred.

Dinner will be served in the fellowship hall for a donation starting at 6 p.m. There will be separate children’s classes offered for preschool, elementary and students. Nursery will only be available upon request no later than 48 hours before the class.

Crescent Project was founded in 1993 by Fouad Masri, a Lebanese student living in the United States, to enable Christians to reach out to the Muslim community. The project was founded to prepare American Christians to reach out to the growing Muslim community in the U.S.
