Faith & Fitness: Living Crazy Love

It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts, it’s falling in love with God. We include a fitness time at 8:30am (optional) and the study group at 9:30am.

In this study of the gospel of John, discover how Jesus is more than enough and how our thirsty hearts can only be quenched by the living water He offers.
