It's week 3 of our Why? series, and this week we're focusing on "Why Jesus" based on Colossians 1:16-23. Human beings distorted the image in which we were created, we suffered under exiles, and remained disobedient to God’s will and God’s word. Yet God loved us enough to not give up on us. God did not want to condemn us, God wanted to save us. God sent us the Son so that we would ourselves escape eternal punishment and gain eternal life – he was born that we might have life. Through Christ’s death and resurrection, we have been reconciled to God and given the free gift of God’s grace. If we receive this free gift, we will be saved – it really is that simple! See you Sunday at 8:30 or 11! -Chris
DON'T MISS OUT! We'll be studying Bob Goff's book Love Does this year for Lent. The study will coincide with the launch of our Lifegroups and our sermon series that will begin on February 22. Mt.

We will have book and study guide sets available for purchase in the Worship Center on February 1 and February 8. Join us for this exciting study!
