Is There Hope For Us?

May 1, 2017




Sy Huffer, Lead Minister at College Heights, reminds us that we all have a hand in the messes we find ourselves in, but that hope in Jesus can save us in the midst of our present mess.


Use these questions to further explore the topic of the message:

Pray: We all live in the midst of a mess. How can prayer reveal to you how you have had a role in creating that mess? In your prayers ask the Lord to reveal to you the hand that you have in the mess that you are in.

Speak: Who can you talk toabout your role in the mess of your family, your work, or your friend group? Who is safe that you can be open with? If you don’t have anyone, find out about joining a small group by going to the Next Steps Coffee.

Grow: The Jews asked, “What shall we do to be saved?” Peter’s response was, “Repent! Change direction! Make a U-Turn!” What does it look like for you to stop doing what you are currently doing that is creating a mess, and to change direction? What is one thing you can change?

Love: Maybe you are in a funk and you are wondering, “Is there hope for me, for us, for a new start?” How can the love of Jesus shown for you on the cross make a difference in your life?



We’ve had such a great response prior to Baptism Sunday that we have decided to keep our two normal service times of 9:15 and 11:00 AM! (We previously announced that we were having only one service.) In addition,

  • There will be NO Bible School for middle school through adults.

  • We will NOT have LaunchPad during the 9:15 AM service.
  • The Kids' Choir WILL be performing at 11:00 AM in the Chapel.

  • Early Childhood (KidCadets, Toddler Town, Baby City) WILL have programming as usual during both services.

We're so excited for this day and the celebration of new life in Jesus who gives us HOPE!
