So many of you expressed appreciation for the Exodus “Chapter-a-Day-Challenge.”  Some found it comforting to know, that even though we must be physically separated during this pandemic, for a few minutes each day, we can be together in God’s word.

We invite you to continue the scripture challenge with John’s Gospel – perhaps the most spiritual of the 4 Gospels.

For those wanting to dig into the many facets of the beautiful scripture of John, Bonnie Blair is offering two Zoom options for study and conversation, Thursdays at 1:00pm or 7:00pm. Click on either event in our calendar for connection information.

Explore grace at street level. What does it look like in action? Yancey sets grace in the midst of life’s stark images, tests its mettle against horrific “ungrace.” Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men? Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace’s life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear? And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, What’s So Amazing About Grace?    –Amazon.com

We all encounter anxiety, but we don’t have to let worry and fear control our lives. Anxious for Nothing, a video study by Max Lucado, provides a roadmap for battling with and healing from anxiety. Anxious for Nothing invites you to delve into Philippians 4:6-7—the most highlighted passage of any book on the planet according to Amazon:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

  • Celebrate God’s goodness
  • Ask God for help
  • Leave your concerns with God
  • Meditate on good things

Stop letting anxiety rule the day. Join Max on the journey to true freedom and experience more joy, clarity, physical renewal, and contentment by the power of the Holy Spirit.
