Sermon Series: The Silent Years

There was a time period between Saul’s encounter with Jesus on the Damascus road and his beginning of his ministry in the name of Jesus. Sometimes called “The Silent Years,” these were years where Saul wrestled through his understanding of God, of himself, of the church, of the Scriptures and how that would impact how he lived moving forward. This year during our Lenten season we are going to take an opportunity to do the same, to put down that which distracts us in this world and take the opportunity to rest in the Lord and be refreshed by Him, reflecting on reality in light of Him.

What do we believe about the Bible?

Sunday, February 18th

To start out our Lenten adventure, we will look at the Bible and consider how we received it, how we can look at it, and how we can trust it as historical, factual, and authoritative for our lives. What is the Bible? Is it trustworthy? What are the implications for it if it is? Join us this week as we embrace wonder and begin to look into our own relationship with the Scriptures!

Daily Prayers, Digging Deeper Guide and coordinating Life Group Curriculum are available each week on Sunday to further explore this Sermon Series. You can find those resources (for this week and ALL previous weeks) HERE or at the Welcome Center on Sunday.

Adventure:Kids News

This Sunday in Adventure:Kids, the kids will be starting a new unit focusing on the arrest of Jesus. Over the next few weeks, they will be learning that the time for Jesus’ rejection was at hand. But even as His death approached, Jesus continued to act as a perfect Priest, loving His followers and praying to the Father on their behalf.

Our New Key Passage is: "For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in

every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin." - Hebrews 4:15

We can't wait to see you this Sunday!

Sermon notes and challenges for families are available on the Adventure:Kids Facebook page, OR click here for a pdf version.

Weekly Wonderings

Much like Advent, we will be celebrating the Lent season as a church family with opportunities to lean in together throughout the week. Instead of a season-long filled box, we will be handing out "Weekly Wondering" Packets that have been lovingly and prayerfully prepared with activities and resources to help wrestle with and work through the topic for the week. These resources and activities are to support you, and whoever may be participating with you, in drawing closer to Jesus throughout this season. These Lent Weekly Wondering Packets will be available starting at our Ash Wednesday service and each following service of the Lenten season.

If you picked up a packet on Ash Wednesday, and have done the activity, don't forget to bring your "Wonder Wall" interactive piece with you to church on Sunday to pin to the board! If you missed the first packet, but still want to check out it, you can grab it on Sunday along with the one for next week!

For any questions about Lent or how we will be participating together throughout this season, please contact Sam.

BaseCamp Session 2

Wednesdays at 5:45pm

We are really looking forward to continuing this session of BaseCamp! Join us around the table as we equip, encourage, support & challenge each other into the mission God calls us to in every aspect of our lives. We will participate in a family style meal paired with questions and activities to help us connect and engage in Jesus-centered discussion and fellowship.

Adventure Finances

If you're interested in current church finances,

see our January graphics included above here.

Adventure of Faith is a very generous community of believers. 

I know this because whenever we communicate a need, we meet it.

Next week I'll answer another Adventure-related finance question.

Please continue to send your Adventure-related

financial questions to me HERE.

This section is a weekly reminder that God is Good!

He is good to us every single day & we will praise His name!

Our God is Good moment for this week shared from Callie:

Our annual Date Night event took place on February 10th, and it was a huge blessing to many! Adventure of Faith and Adventure Preschool couples with young children were sent out on dates for the evening, with resources to help them pour into their marriages that evening and for weeks to come. Many people contributed to this event, from older couples writing date night questions, people shopping for supplies, volunteers hanging out with kids, local restaurants offering discounts, and many praying for all involved. It was clear that God was in this, and so cool to see our church family recognize and communicate the importance of the covenant of marriage. 

This space in the newsletter is a small way we continue to celebrate the goodness of God all year long, and practice being aware of His presence in our lives. So, if you have stories of God's goodness big or small, hit reply to this email and send them our way. We would love to hear them, pray in praise over them and talk to you about sharing them.

To spur your thoughts to God's goodness start by asking yourself these questions:

What Good have you witnessed recently?

What Good has God brought into your life?

What Good has God prompted you to do for one another?

God is Good!!
