"The Choice to Rejoice"
Each and every day we make an endless number of choices, from the most trivial to the most significant. But how many of us wake up each day and make a conscious choice to rejoice? How do we live in the joy that comes from knowing the love of God that is shown to us in Christ, regardless of the circumstances of the day? The Apostle Paul wrote a very special letter to the church in Philippi that overflows with joy and thanksgiving. This series will bracket the time both before and after the season of Lent. Together we will explore this joy filled letter and learn how Paul was able to rejoice even as he writes as a prisoner in Rome.
Lent is Coming! The season of Lent is just around the corner. This year we will be engaging in the “practice of spiritual disciples” beginning March 5th. The midweek Lenten Schedule is as follows:

Sunday morning 9:30AM. Bible study and Sunday School.
New bible study begins at 9:30am on Sunday, March 2nd. What’s your favorite oxymoron? Is it jumbo shrimp, military intelligence, or perhaps express mail? We laugh at these because they poke a little bit of fun at our culture and don’t really cause any harm. But how about this one...Christian atheist? How many of you have heard that one before? Those are certainly two words that don’t, or at least shouldn’t go together. But what if we were to actually take that seriously and consider the implications of what a Christian atheist might look like?
In many ways this aptly describes a serious problem in the church. “Christian atheist” is not so much a statement of belief as it is a statement regarding behavior. This week we will being a discussion along with author and Pastor Greg Grosechel as we explore the topic, The Christian Atheist: Believing in God but Living as if He Doesn’t Exist. It is sure to challenge our own walks of faith as we seek to live as true disciples of Jesus Christ.
