Love Wins: A Book about Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived by Rob Bell

(7 sessions) Sunday, October 16, 23, 30 and November 6, 13, 20 and December 4 at 10:45 am

Leaders: Becky and Scott Scheiry | Location:  St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church

Bell believes that Jesus’ story is first and foremost about the love of God for every single one of us. Bell asserts there are a growing number who have become acutely aware that Jesus’ story has been hijacked by other stories, stories Jesus isn’t interested in telling, because they have nothing to do with what Jesus came to do. The plot has been lost, and it’s time to reclaim it. Rob Bell wrote this book because the kind of faith Jesus invites us into doesn’t skirt the big questions about topics like God and Jesus and salvation and judgment and heaven and hell but takes us deep into the heart of them.



The Freedom of Self – Forgetfulness by Timothy and Kathy Keller

(4 sessions) Tuesday, October 18, 25 and November 1, 8 at 6:30 pm

Leader: Brian Moatz | Location: St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church

In an age where pleasing people, inflating our egos, and building the perfect resumé are the primary goals of society, what would a super-naturally changed heart look like? Focusing on 1 Corinthians 3:21–4:7, they reveal that truly joyful, gospel-humble people aren’t self-hating or self-loving, they’re simply self-forgetting.
