The Shape of Salvation in Luke
We confess Jesus saves.
But how does Jesus save us?
What does Jesus save us from?
What does Jesus save us to?
Lenten Small Groups will focus on stories from the gospel of Luke encouraging participants to reflect and wrestle with them. Our hope for this study is that you bring your full self and community with you as you read Luke. Bring your stories, your hopes, your questions and your fears. Through small group fellowship find a vision of salvation wide enough, graceful enough, and merciful enough to carry you through challenging days.
Be linked in for Lent
Join us each Sunday morning as Eric Barreto leads us through the Gospel of Luke, examining not only the Biblical and historical context of Luke’s narrative of Jesus’ life and ministry but also its timely and timeless impact on our lives today. Each week small groups will study the same texts from a more personal and contemplative point of view, and Pastor Davis will preach them in Worship.
