Series: Living Under Kingdom Authority

1 Corinthians 11:1-16
As you are turning to the 11th chapter of 1 Corinthians, I want to invite you to join us tonight at 6:00 PM in the Gym, as we begin a special summer series throughout the month of July entitled:
The Son of God: The Life of Jesus in You!

*Jesus' Temptation and Your Temptation.
*Jesus' Suffering and Your Suffering.
*Jesus' Death and Your Death.
*Jesus' Ministry and Your Ministry.
Included will be clips from the movie: Son of God, that will help God's word come alive as we discover the life of Jesus in us! And then after our four-week study on these Sunday nights, we'll be showing the movie: Son of God, from start to finish.
You will want to be here each night with a friend, as we watch the pages of scripture come alive on the screens. Five fabulous summer Sunday nights beginning tonight!
