Mere Christianity

In the month of November 2018 GCC will be doing a sermon series based on the book Mere Christianity by CS Lewis. It’s one of the most significant books on apologetics and Christian doctrine from the last century. We are hoping that most of the church will read through the book over the course of the month, about 5-7 pages per day.
