Community in the Word April 15, 2018 @ 9:30am
Community in the Word is our effort to be people of the Book. To read it and to let the Word of God read us, challenge us, and change us into the Image of God. Join us for this experiment in community with the Word at the center.
This Week’s Teaching
As we journey through this Easter season, we see how the very first Passover finds its fulfillment as Jesus institutes the Lord’s Supper and as Christ Himself becomes our Passover Lamb. “God rescues us from the dominion of darkness and brings us into the Kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom there is the redemption and forgiveness of sin.” -Colossians 1:13-14
1 John 3:1-7
See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.
Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous.

Community in the Word
Sunday at 9:30am. Being together in the Word is central to our faith
Worship Shaped by the Word
While the preaching scripture for worship is different, these CITW help to shape worship each week
Every Sunday @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am – FAMILY LIFE CENTER
Join us for CITW, a communal bible study where we learn together what it means to live our faith. Each week we’ll release a lesson, accompanied scripture. The hope is that you read and study prior to arriving on Sunday. Then stick around and see how the New Testament Scripture echos throughout our Worship service and connects to the Psalm and focus of the sermon.
