Gather with other women from the comfort of your home for a virtual Bible study led by Deanna Rossow. This study, titled “My Next Step: A how-to companion for people who want to follow Jesus (but sometimes get stuck)” will take place via Google Meets from 10 – 11 AM each Monday.
You’re invited to a time of friendship and fun on Wednesday mornings at NewLife. This group of ladies, affectionately known as “The WooHoo’s”, gather together from 10 AM – 12:30 PM for brunch, Bible study, and prayer. Please feel free to drop in and give it a try!
You Meant It for Evil, But God Meant It for Good
Back toward the beginning of our walk through the Bible, we encountered these words from Joseph: “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good” (Genesis 50:20). That statement, spoken to the very family who had sold Joseph into slavery, captures something of the uniqueness of Luke’s account of Jesus’s suffering, death, and resurrection.
Luke presents enemies, faithless disciples, hapless crowds, pragmatic powerbrokers, and Satan himself, all arrayed against the perfectly innocent Son of God. Through them, one evil purpose comes to pass: Jesus’s destruction. God the Father, however, puts their plan to use and then overturns it in the victory that no one expected. It’s all part of His plan!
Join us on Wednesdays (6-7pm) during Lent as we walk through Luke 22 and 23, seeing how God changes evil into new creation goodness for us in Jesus.
Retired pastor, Rev. Cliff Bira, is leading a Men’s Group and Bible study on the book of Joshua Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 7:45 PM in the multipurpose room. All men are welcome to drop in when available to join in the discussion, conversation, and fellowship. Grab your Bible, a cup of coffee, and let’s see how Jesus works in our hearts!
