LIFETREE CAFÉ TONIGHT: Tonight’s program, titled “Only One Way to God? Can One Religion Really Have All the Answers?” features the filmed story of Valerie Winn, an American whose spiritual journey led her to a Chinese village where she encountered an underground church. Winn describes her encounters with various religions and how they shaped her. “I finally said, ‘God, would you just show me if you’re real?'” says Winn.

THE SUNDAY MORNING CLASS IS STUDYING THE GOSPEL OF JOHN. We have learned much about Jesus during this study, not the least of which is His great love for us, love we will see in its fullness as He willingly goes to the cross to redeem us.
