Eternity is Now in Session by John Ortberg

Wednesdays, July 10 – August 7 | 9:30 – 11:30 AM

Led by Lydia Fourman

Most of us think of eternity as something that begins after we die. However, Jesus doesn’t talk about eternity that way. In fact, Jesus defines “eternal life” only once, with great precision, and in a way that has been largely lost in our day. Filmed on location in Israel, this study unpacks and explores Jesus’ definition of eternal life and what it really means to be a disciple of Christ.
In this five-session video study, pastor and author John Ortberg will lead you in a radical rediscovery of what the Bible really says about salvation and show you how to experience the unspeakably rich, interactive fellowship and joy that exist between Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Eternal life—here, now, and every minute of every day. Book (optional to have book) cost is $12. Study guide is $10. All are welcome.
