The Good News of Jesus Christ
Jan

to Feb 18

The Good News of Jesus Christ

  • The Gathering Place Potomac Room (downstairs) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Everyday media pours news into our lives.  It’s difficult to know what to believe.  There is news that is so important, that each man’s soul depends on it.  We want everyone to hear this important, good news, but why is it so hard to share the good news?

Come and join us, won’t you?  Let’s join in grace together...for His sake and for those who desperately need to hear this good news.

We’ll explore why understanding the gospel is critical, uncover reasons why we’re hesitant to share the gospel, discuss four major components of the gospel, and other topics.

There's no cost to attend.  Just bring a Bible and a pen.
