Uptown Updates: June 20th
Christ is our complete Savior. The world longs for a savior who can help them with their sin, help them approach God, help secure their future. As our complete Savior Christ is the perfect sacrifice who removes all our guilt and restores us forever to God. Christ is our perfect High Priest who allows us to enter the presence of the living God with confidence. Christ is the perfect assurance that our future will be spent in heaven with him. The Book of Hebrews extols the completeness of Christ as our Savior, which becomes a certain hope for all of God’s people.

All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter: A Study in Ecclesiastes
Teachers: Tom Queen, Ryan Bowen
Where: 3rd Floor Boardroom

For many, the book of Ecclesiastes is an enigma. What are we supposed to make of all this “vanity of vanities” and “there is nothing new under the sun” stuff? Is this book’s message really as discouraging as so many believe it to be? In this 9-week course, we will explore the key themes of the book of Ecclesiastes, and together see that underneath all the futility of the Preacher’s quest for meaning, he found an answer that is, in the words of Martin Luther: “a mind full of cheerfulness and contentment with the will and dealings of God.”
Missional Living: Life Truly to the Full
Teachers: Mark Skylling, Chris Van Roekel, Forde Britt, Adam Dyer 
Where: Resource Center

The Great Commission calls us to go and make disciples, and Jesus also says that he came that we might have life abundantly. How do we actually go about accomplishing these aspirational elements of our life as Christians? Come and explore with us what it means to live a missional life, in all the fullness of life that God intends.
