Easter 2019: There’s More to the Story Study Guide

This past weekend, we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus and discovered that the chapter we’re in is not the end of our story because Jesus has so much more in store for us. Examining the perspectives of Mary Magdalene, Thomas, and Mary the mother of Jesus, we saw how the resurrection changes everything for us and gives our stories new meaning and purpose.

Quote to Remember: Why do we continue to look for new life amongst dead things?—Pastor Doug Sauder


Imagine a city filled with the hope of Jesus . . . Imagine schools, businesses, neighborhoods, families, entire communities walking with Jesus, loving one another, living generously, and radiating the truth of the gospel. Imagine South Florida full of people who are connected to God, one another, and those in need! That’s what Vision 2023 is all about! It’s a city-changing five-year vision to make 60,000 new, passionate, fully-devoted disciples by 2023.

We believe that as God’s people saturate the region with the gospel, generosity grows, stronger families are formed, the elderly are cared for, orphans, addicts, and widows find lasting hope, and true social changes happens.
