#Asking For A Friend – Heartless God
We are continuing our series #asking for a friend where we’ll be answering the hard questions you have about God, such as “Why doesn’t God answer my prayers?”, “Why does God give us so many rules?”, “Where is God when I can’t feel Him?”, and “Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?” You’ll have the opportunity to text in your questions to have them answered right in service, and if we run out of time the questions will be answered the following Tuesday, 10:30 am on Facebook LIVE.
How do we keep our faith in God when we are going through tough times? Many people believe that doubt is the opposite of faith, but that statement would be false. Doubt is actually an element of faith. Ultimately, we have to decide what we are going to put our faith in, God or something else. Join us this Thursday and Sunday as Nate teaches where to find God in the midst of our pain.
“But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” – Mark 9:22-24 (NIV version)
Thursday: 6:30 pm
Sunday: 8:30, 9:30 and 11 am

Autism Support Group Meets Thursday
Strengthen Your Relationship With Jesus In A Lifegroup
Lifegroups are a place to take a break from the busy demands of everyday life with a group of friends, a place to share, laugh, and serve together. Lifegroups are a place to grow in your relationship with Jesus, a place to learn the stories that Jesus taught and how they apply to your life today. The Bible is a living, breathing way for God to communicate with you, right where you are, regardless of whether you have been walking with Him your whole life or the journey has just begun.
