Everyone Matters

Sunday Worship Message Series | August 14 - September 4

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” —John 3:16. It’s probably the most well-known verse in the Bible. But it can be so familiar that we don’t think through all of its implications. What does “God so loved the world” mean for us? What does it require of us?

Adult Online Study Group

Eternity Is Now in Session by John Ortberg

Tuesdays | 7:00 - 8:15 PM | August 9 - September 6

Facilitator:  Pastor Rob
Sessions:  5

Something in us is waiting―for what, we don’t know. Something different? Something better?

For Christians, perhaps the deepest expression of what we’re waiting for is found in the phrase “eternal life.” But what is eternal life? Why do we want it? And how do we know if we have it?

In Eternity Is Now in Session, bestselling author John Ortberg dispels the myth that eternal life is something way out in outer space that we can only hope to experience after we die―and that being saved is merely about meeting the minimal entrance requirements for getting into heaven. Instead, John unpacks the reality that the moment we trust Christ, we are initiated into “eternal living” with God as a here and now reality, one that will continue beyond our life on this earth.

Jesus defined eternal life just once, in John 17:3: “. . . that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” The kind of “knowing God” that is eternal life is an interactive relationship, not just an affirmation of certain facts about God. Once we begin the transformative journey of truly knowing God, we can start to experience His presence, favor, and resurrection power right here on this earth―in the details, tasks, and challenges of daily, ordinary life.

As we begin to know God this way, we’ll realize each moment of our lives is a vehicle to the eternity we’ve been longing for all along.

Participation via Zoom.  Please register below or at the welcome center so we can send you Zoom information.

Hesed House Serve Opportunity

GriefShare - Support Group

Tuesdays | 6:30-8:00 PM | August 23 - November 15

Anyone who has experienced the death of a family member or friend is invited to attend our new GriefShare series. Beginning August 23, the sessions will be held each week at Faith on Tuesdays 6:30-8:00 PM for 13 sessions.

GriefShare is a nondenominational, biblical support group that focuses on helping people who are dealing with a loved one’s death. Each DVD session features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories, followed by small group discussion about the topics presented (with workbook support). The workbook also provides a brief daily Bible study.

At each GriefShare session you will find encouragement and help in grieving the death of your loved one. No matter the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and how to cope with the normal emotions that come when grieving a death. You will learn valuable information on facing life situations, and you’ll gain renewed hope for the future. These sessions are open to any adult regardless of whether your experience is recent or not so recent.
