Calvary BFC
SEE THE DIFFERENCE: WHEN LIFE HURTS 1 John 2:18-25
Does what you are doing today matter to the world? Does it matter to you? What is the meaning of my life? Sometimes we have days that we would like to forget. Sometimes we have weeks that are mundane. So what’s the point of a life lived with boredom or pain? Jesus presents us with the opportunity for a life that is filled with meaning. Join us as we look at 1 John 2:18-25. We will seek to discover how we can experience transcendent meaning even when we live with all of the challenges of our lives.
