Sunday Morning Adult Study Group
We all know what’s required to fall in love… a pulse. Falling in love is easy. But staying there―that’s something else entirely. With more than a thousand matchmaking services available today and new ones springing up all the time, finding a romantic match can be easier than ever. But staying together with the one you’ve found seems to be the real challenge.

So, is it possible for two people to fall in love and actually stay there? Absolutely! Join us as Andy Stanley will show us how through the four sessions of Staying in Love. The group starts Sunday, November 13 and meets on Sunday morning during both services, so you can choose either service to attend the Adult Study Group and then attend the other service. You can sign up online at

“You know who I’m talking about. You’ll cry at their funeral but you don’t want to go on vacation with them.”
-Mark Lowry, Christian comedian
1. Jesus presented a new standard of forgiveness.
“Hate those against God. Love all the sons of light, each according to his lot in God’s design, and hate all the sons of darkness, each according to his guilt in God’s vengeance.” (IQS 1.9-11) The Qumran Rule of Community
In the shadow of the cross I lose all of my excuses.
2. Paul restated Jesus’ standard of forgiveness.
Reconciliation makes two different entities compatible.
The process of reconciliation implies responsibility.
The goal of reconciliation is acceptance.
