"Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose." Philippians 2:12-13
**National Summer Group June 10th!**

This weekend is our one large group event of the summer and we are excited to have Pastor James Hein leading the conversation "Yes, I'm saved... Now what?". As he leads us through the concept mentioned in this month's passage from Philippians, we hope you will join in the conversation wherever you are in the country. It is has been our dream from the beginning that the encouragement and Christian inspiration from these events could reach young adults and people helping serve young adult ministries outside of the Milwaukee area and we're excited to present this year's Summer Group Live!

More About the Topic
“Yes, I’m saved. Now what?”
Working the eternal implications of a timeless gospel into a daily life.
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 and July. 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?"
