Study of "Surprised by Hope"

    06.03.13 | Christian Formation

    Surprised by Hope ImageWhat is heaven really like? Is our main duty as Christians simply to help non-Christians get into heaven? What hope does the gospel hold for this present life? In what ways does God intend for us to experience that hope personally and spread its healing power to the world around us? These are some of the questions addressed in the DVD study Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church by N.T. Wright, one of the world's top biblical scholars and a bishop in the Church of England. Gain an exciting vision of God's final new creation and how it can transform your life right now. On Wednesday, June 19 at 6:30 pm we will begin this six-week DVD-based curriculum, and you are invited to participate. The sessions will be every Wednesday night through July 31 (except for July 10), and will each last one hour. Please RSVP to Lori Lavelle by emailing  by Monday, June 10. We request that you consider making a $10 donation to cover the cost of your participant guide. Join us as we grow in Christ together through this study.
