Our theme for 2017-2018: “Grace: the Heart of the Gospel”
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
Like an exquisitely cut diamond, God’s heart shimmers with facets of glorious grace, each revealing the rich depths of His love for us. Join us this year as we explore these beautiful facets of grace that God extends to us in the saving work of Jesus. At our Fall Gathering, surrounded by the beauty of autumn, we will consider the grace of a holy God who stooped down to save sinners. Amidst the twinkling lights at Advent we will ponder the sacrificial lengths of grace to which Jesus went to accomplish our salvation. Throughout the winter and spring we will explore the implications of this grace applied by the Holy Spirit as it reshapes us in the image of Jesus, creating grace-filled hearts in us so that we can be instruments of His grace to others. This year as we meditate together on God’s glorious grace, may the Holy Spirit cut and shape our hearts to display through us the facets of His beauty for His glory and the sake of the world.
“My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ.” – COLOSSIANS 2:2
