The Seven Signs of Grace
Now Jesus did many other signs in
the presence of the disciples,
which are not written in this book;
but these are written so that you may believe
that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God,
and that by believing you may have life in His name.
John 20: 30-31

Friday, March 31 @ 7:00 PM

When we gather to worship, do we actually think about 
the fact that Jesus is going to meet us there?

You are invited to a gathering with one purpose, 
to come together expecting Jesus to meet us in our worship. 
This will be a time where we think about who Jesus really is, 
what He has done for us and how we can more fully respond to Him.

Music will be led by Praise 365 and we are partnering with
Chosen People Ministries, 
who will share how the hints of Jesus in the Old Testament, 
joined with the arrival of Jesus in the New Testament, 
bring His purpose and His person into clearer perspective 
so that our faith and our daily walk with Him are made stronger.

Yes, life is busy, committing a Friday night can be difficult, 
but is it not of great value to spend time in rest,
reflection and renewal with Jesus.

So, come expecting Jesus to meet you in this place. 
Come expecting to receive His mercy and His grace. 
Come as His bride to meet Him in His love. Come Expecting Jesus.

Foundations of Faith

The Foundations of Faith is an introduction to Christian practices
and beliefs which help us build our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ.
The class is designed to provide more than information, it is about learning
Christian practices which help us deepen our relationship with God in Jesus Christ.
In this class, we will learn three models of prayer used by Jesus and His disciples.
We will build our relationship with Christ through learning new and exciting
ways to read God's word. We will also learn basic practices that help us 
develop an enriching personal worship life. This class is designed to help us 
understand how the Holy Spirit is at work in our life and in our unique spiritual gifts.
By the end of the sessions we will have learned how to:
♦ pray more effectively
 read and understand the Bible more clearly
♦ enrich your personal devotional time
♦ discover your spiritual gifts
♦ explore ways to serve and
♦ discover your own faith story. 

Orientation is on Sunday, Feb. 5th at 6 PM for all the classes.
There will be 3 class options: 
Sunday nights @ 6 pm,
Wednesday nights @ 6 pm
Tuesday @ 10 am

The classes will last 1 hour each for this 6 week study.
