Why the Church?

On July 3rd, Pastor Jason shares his final word of encouragement at New Vision Church.   In his message, Why The Church?,  he will explore questions such as:Is church still relevant?   With so many online options, is church even needed?   With so many scandals involving religious leaders, is church still helpful?  Guided by the story of the followers of Jesus and their experiences after he ascended to heaven, you will be challenged to consider that church is indeed still relevant and helpful for your own spiritual growth as well as that of your family and the world.

4. A Hole in the GospelIs our faith only about going to church, studying the Bible, and avoiding the most serious sins – or does God expect more? Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it? Fifteen years ago Rich Stearns came face-to- face with that question as he sat in a mud hut in Rakai, Uganda. Stearns’s compelling story demon- strates that the whole gospel was always meant to be a world-changing, social revolution, a revolution that begins with each one of us.

Thursdays 6:30 – 8:15 PM, May 5 through June 9
Leader: Goldie Guyer
Location:  Goldie’s Home
Voltage: High

 

5. TrustWho do you trust the most? Do you trust yourself–your wisdom, your skills, your money or God the most? Join us to unpack what the New Testament says about trust.  In our postmodern world, people do not just easily accept our system of beliefs and become a believer in Christ, so we won’t learn a 7 steps to salvation plan,  but a method of guiding them to discover the truths of God’s Word for themselves whether they are a believer, nonbeliever or a person of another religion. Most importantly, we will learn to disciple like Jesus discipled.

Tuesdays, 7:00 PM, May 5 through June 28
Leader: Martha Martin
Location:   TBD
Voltage: Low
