National Summer Group June 10th!
“Yes, I’m saved. Now what?”
Working the eternal implications of a timeless gospel into a daily life.
We are excited to announce this year's main session speaker and the topic we'll be looking at this summer! Pastor James Hein will be leading our June session and will be recording special content when your local group gathers in July to continue the conversation. We'll be looking at Gospel implications, and to get a sense for where he'll be leading us in June, check out the brief session description:

"Studies and surveys show as fact, that the lifegoals of the average young adult Christian today are virtually indistinguishable from their secular counterparts. They want to have a great marriage, a beautiful family, a successful career, enough money to not worry about money, follow the deepest desires of their hearts, and, in general, be comfortable.

Put differently, the average young adult Christian today knows and can share the gospel news that Jesus died for my sins so that when I die, I can go to heaven. The average young adult Christian cannot, however, explain to people how the gospel affects their self-image, their relationships, their finances, their health, their career, their identity, etc. 

That’s a radically different life goal than the Early Church, which sought the goal of Kingdom Building. In this talk, we'll look at the "Now What" part of the Gospel story. If you know that your final chapter has already been written (Eternity with Christ), how should that reality impact the way we live as young men and women today?"

Registration for this event is FREE, but you need to register online.
If you are 18-25 years old, or care about encouraging and inspiring people in this age group, make plans to take invest in your walk with Jesus and your generation Sunday, June 10th. Get a group together and join us in person or join us live through our Livestream link. After the event is over, we'll be giving instructions on how to carry on the conversation with your community groups wherever you are in the country.

Sunday June 10th - Join the live stream at 6:30pm or join us in person at The Bridge at St. Paul's Lutheran in Muskego, WI. We'll have more information on the speakers and topic soon. After the main session wraps up, we will be inviting everyone to spend an hour together in community talking through questions on the topic. BEFORE YOU LEAVE, you and your community group will put a date on the calendar to meet in July.

In JULY - We will provide a couple of videos and a question sheet that will guide you into a deeper discussion about the topic. As we apply the lessons learned from our time with Pastor Hein, we will do so not only wrestling with the context and implications, but also with an eye to doing something about it. BEFORE YOU LEAVE, you and your community group will put a date on the calendar in August to do something about what you have learned.

In AUGUST - You will create an opportunity to do something in your local community with what you have learned together through this Bible study.

In JANUARY - We hope you will join us for the national 2 day conference in Milwaukee, WI, January 4th and 5th (more information coming next month).

SAVE THE DATE - Sunday evening, June 10th! Muskego, WI and Live Streaming online!
