A launch into the new year with FIRST LARGE GROUP!
To those of you who were able to join us tonight for the FIRST LARGE GROUP of the school year, we were so EXCITED to see you all. :)
For those who were unable to stop by, we missed you - but here’s a recap of the evening’s talk, entitled “Why are you at Columbia?”.
The passage came from Genesis 12:1-8. And here’s the gist …
We are all in pursuit of SOMETHING, seeking FULFILLMENT. Where will we find ultimate fulfillment? What if our lives are part of a bigger, much greater story? God told Abram, “Leave YOUR country, YOUR people and YOUR father’s houshold …” Abram had to let go of everything he had identified himself with. Then God told him to “GO to the land I will show you.” God had something greater in store for Abram. God said LEAVE and GO but didn’t stop there. God made a PROMISE that “to your offspring I will give this land.” Abram underwent significant change and discovered something (someONE) much greater than anything he had known before and anything he could have imagined for himself.
We believe that change happens through the power of the Gospel, for the glory of God and the good of people. KCCC is committed to 3 main priorities:
- Embracing the Gospel personally - go deeper into the Gospel to honestly recognize personal sin and genuinely celebrate Christ’s grace to us
- Experiencing the Gospel together - engage in authentic community to move forward together. Real and lasting change occurs with community
- Extending the Gospel to others - look for opportunities to be used by God to impact the lives around us (by displaying, demonstrating and declaring the Gospel)
We invite you to join us in this journey of discovering who we were created to be, what we are called to do and how this bigger story involves us helping to change the world and experience the change ourselves. :)
We hope you would join us for LARGE GROUP + Suite Night next week. God be with you! :D
