Discussion Groups return for Freedom

This Sunday we will be starting a new series of Freedom from Fear.  We all face fear in our lives that come from different sources but the bible is full of hope not fear.  Jesus tells us not to fear and not to worry because he is for us, and if he is for us who could stand against us.  Over the next 4 weeks we'll look at what scripture says about overcoming fear through the power of Jesus in us.  After the morning message and a coffee break we'll go into discussion groups and dig deeper into how we can be free from fear.  Revelation 12:11 says,"they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death."  Studies show that peoples greatest fear is public speaking - death is second-  so together with Jesus and one and other we can get over fear and take the power and freedom of Christ in the world.  Max Lucado has written a new book call Fearless: Imagine Your Life without Fear.  While this month will not be a focused book study, you may find what Lucado has written as we go through the series.  Click on the book for more info or to buy it online
On Friday November 11 there will be a coffee house at the Grace to raise money for world vision.  Come out and support the Interact Group from Memorial High School as they endeavor to help ease poverty and hunger around the world.   
Please be in pray this week as we begin the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles chapels again.  We'll go on Tuesday to meet the team and talk about what we'll be doing this year with them.  There are quite a few new players this year and we have a very unique opportunity to share the gospel with these young men, many of whom are away from their family and friends and are faced with the temptations that being a semi-pro athlete brings.  Pray for Grace and wisdom for us as we go to share Jesus love and freedom.
