New Class Starts Tonight, 7pm!
Sacrifice in the Bible & Christian Life
Sacrifice perplexes us today. It is central to the religion of the Bible, but today conjures up sad and frightening images of violence and loss. This is because a centuries-old misconception distorts what was for ancient people a joyful everyday experience.
We will take a fresh look at the sacrifices of the Old Testament and their fulfillment in Christ. Then we'll consider how Christ’s sacrifice bears fruit in us today, in the offerings we make to God.
Along the way we'll see how sacrifice is a precious and meaningful gift, welcoming God into our lives.
