Surprised by Hope - Session 2

Our Hope series continues with Week 2 of Surprised by Hope: Hope of the Resurrection.

If you are following along with the Sunday morning or Wednesday evening groups, here is this week’s video:

One of the assignments that Ron asked of the class was to watch the video again and look for where Tom Wright describes conversion. It’s towards the end of the video. He does not actually use the word conversion, but he describes in a couple of minutes what takes place in true conversion.

Reminder that we have copies of the discussion guide available. Ask and we’ll email you a copy or pick one up at the office. Join us Wednesday night for a continuing discussion of what we are learning.

See you this Sunday!

Of Heaven, Resurrection, and The Mission of the Church

Everyone has questions about Heaven, Death, Life after death, and end times. For some, those questions lead to to doubt, and even rejection of God. For others, it leads them to God. Many people are somewhere in the middle, still wrestling with their questions.

Beginning this Sunday, we will spend six weeks tackling those life-size questions. What does the Bible actually teach about Heaven? About life after death and Resurrection? About end times and judgement? And what the role of the church is in all this?

Sundays

10:00a – “Surprised By Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church” led by Dr. Ron Johnson using the video curriculum of the same name by N.T. Wright.

11:00a – Our worship gathering and teaching time will build on the same themes as the class.

Wednesdays

5:30p – Girls of Grace (Discipleship group for teen girls)
6:30p – Dinner
7:15p – GroupLife – Intergenerational time for bible study, discussion, and prayer. We’ll take Sunday’s class and sermon material, and dig deeper through additional scripture and discussion.
