Bioethics for the Church, Society, and the Family

8:30 a.m to 2:00 p.m.

Lunch is provided

What is bioethics, and why should I care as a Christian?

Increasingly, bioethics issues impact our daily lives. We see the news, read the magazines, and wrestle with discussions about issues such as homosexual marriage, abortion, or gender dysphoria, just to name a few.

Join us as we get a primer on how we approach these questions under the cross, and with the mercy of Christ clearly in our minds and hearts.
