"...as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight." (Acts 1:9)

This past week we asked, "Did Jesus rise from death?" This week we ask, "Where is Jesus today?" This week we add more depth to our study about Jesus in that He wasn't just someone who lived, but He is alive today.

Come join us as we work through this study, "Vintage Jesus: Timeless Answers to Timely Questions", together this Sunday.

Note: If you would like to come better prepared or miss this week, you can find a podcast based on the same material as this study here.

As a life group, we are designating the fourth Sunday of each month to meet and eat for lunch after church. You don't have to make a reservation, but we will coordinate a casual restaurant (with plenty of high chairs) where you order when you get there, sit, eat, and can feel free to move around and visit the different people who come.

This Sunday: Kincaid's Hamburgers

NOTE: If you have any suggestions of where we can meet in the future, we'd be happy to hear them. Just leave a comment on this post.

Church-wide Book Study: Radical

Hey Group,

If you were in service this past Sunday morning, you heard Stephen spring the news that all the life groups are going to be reading through and discussing the book, "Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream." We will start discussing "Radical" Sunday, March 6, and the church will have about 250 books available to purchase this coming Sunday (Feb. 27) for $8/book (or free if it is cost prohibitive for you). If you're not going to be at church this coming Sunday, you'll want to secure a copy on your own and read the first chapter by our March 6 meeting.

I'm looking forward to this book.

NOTE: If you are an Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook, or an app user for either of those eReaders, then you should be able to purchase "Radical" for $5. Potentially useful information for some, huh?

ANOTHER NOTE: If it makes things less stressful in acquiring your copy, you can sign up to read the first chapter of the book here: http://www.radicalthebook.com/links.html .

This Sunday: Did Jesus Rise From Death?

"...he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures..." (1 Corinthians 15:4)

"Did Jesus rise from death?" The apostle Paul says that if Jesus did not rise from the dead, then Christians are to be pitied among all men for their faith would be built on a myth. Let's look into this event a little further this week.

Hey group,

In response to this past Sunday's sermon and the current series, the church is holding a day of prayer this Saturday from 7 am to 7 pm in the sanctuary. You can come whenever you'd like, but we've been encouraged to come together as a life group and, of the people that asked, I've been telling people that we'd be up there at 9 a.m. So if you can join us, please come. Hope to see you there!

This Sunday: What Did Jesus Accomplish on the Cross?

"For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:21)

"What did Jesus accomplish on the cross?" Seriously, think about it for a little bit: Jesus (fully God, fully human) was sent from God via a virgin birth as a missionary and prophet among many other roles. We all know generally what Jesus accomplished on the cross, but this week we'll take a bit more in depth look at it.

"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14)

"Why did Jesus' mom need to be a virgin?" Last week we looked at why Jesus came to the Earth, but this week we'll look at why Jesus had to be born of a virgin.
