Today in the Word – Ephesians 1

Paul's letter to Ephesus is actually an "encyclical," a short work meant to be read by lots of first century churches, and not just the believers in one city. It's just as applicable to believers in Streetsboro, or Aurora, or Kent today. The book of Ephesians describes our inspiration to live out a spiritual vision of new life in Christ--a life defined by different thinking, hopes and behaviors. Today, we'll see how the first chapter of this letter details God's "behind the scenes" architecture of salvation in Christ unfolding throughout history, and in each of our individual lives since Christ's coming.

ABFs @ 9:15 am

During our 9am hour we have two Adult Bible Fellowships that meet. SALT is for younger people (roughly up to 30 or so) who are in college or early in their careers. The other group, Seeking God’s Story, is in the more established stages of life. Either group is open to marrieds, singles, or married who come single. Both focus on informal discussion-oriented Bible study and application to real life.


…is now on break for the summer. Remember the missions trip is June 17-25. Enjoy your summer.
