Winter/Spring 2018:

Our current study is now underway, and we'd love you to join us as together we work through Hoping for Something Better by Nancy Guthrie. To learn more, preview the book, or find a small group that works for you, please call Joan at 419.271.0172 or complete the form at the bottom of this page:

We find ourselves living with a nagging hope for something better. We want something better than the churchianity of our parents and grandparents, something better than the vague and uncertain spirituality of our neighbors, something better than guilt-induced, holier-than-thou morality, something better than here-and-now, health-and-wealth promises, something more than going-through-the-motions religiosity or the latest-fad religious experience. We were hoping for something authentic—something worth opening our hearts to and filling our minds with and giving our lives for.

And there is something better. There is something better than living life with a merely sentimental, superficial spirituality. There is something better than going through life with a debilitating fear of death. Better than becoming bored and burdened by meaningless religious ritual, better than feeling like an unwelcome outsider or an unworthy hypocrite, better than being bound by shame and regret. There is something better that makes problems and persecution worth persevering through, makes heaven worth waiting for—something worth running toward and dreaming of.
That something better is actually Some One Better. Jesus.
