Verse for the Service!

Hebrews 4:14-16 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus the Great High Priest

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

The Living Faith class would like to invite the congregation to join us in the basement (across from the youth) at 9:45am in a new study titled Animate: Faith (http://animate.wearesparkhouse.org/animate/faith/). In each session, the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group. Each session delves into a faith topic: God, religion, Jesus, salvation, the cross, the Bible, and church. Please contact Terrie Shaffer or Amy Wilfong for more information and to reserve your materials.
