“Jesus Is My Life” Student Series Starts This Wednesday!

Describe your life in a sentence.  What is your life all about?  What motivates you?  What helps you?  What are you building your life on?  What are your dreams and passions?  What did you wake up thinking about this morning?  There is only one person big enough and worthy enough to be your everything.  Can you say this: “Jesus is my life“?  

I want to invite all middle and high school students to join me as we study Romans 12 together on Wednesday nights at 6:15.  The aim of this study is to answer the question: “What does it look like when Jesus is our everything?”

New Kitchen and Wednesday Gatherings Continue

Several people were involved with moving what was movable from the kitchen next to the Fellowship Hall to room 111 (right across from the Student Center).  The Wednesday evening meals team provided desserts and drinks last Wednesday with a great crowd attending the fellowship time and “The Story” training in the Student Center.

This Wednesday the usual Wednesday evening meal procedure will pick back up with some delicious BBQ!  Come on to the Student Center this Wednesday for some fellowship time and the third installment of the “The Story” training.

and we have seen his glory
John 1:14

     The glory of gadgets, goodies, and greenery fades in the light of the knowledge of glory of God in the face of Christ.  Have you fixed your gaze on Christ this Christmas?  Can others see that you are fully satisfied with Him?

Grace and Truth through Jesus Christ
Sunday, December 22, 2013
