Verse by verse, we will discover the amazing grace of God's plan and the life-changing calling of the Gospel.

October 10, 2010:
October 17, 2010: "A Boat, A Crew, A Destination" Ephesians 4:1-16. How does the Church come a clear and effective representation of Jesus to the world? How do we become the strong, mature Body of Christ? Only by holding firmly onto what unites us and by applying generously our diverse gifts.
October 24, 2010: "What Not to Wear" Ephesians 4: 17 - 5:2. Jesus wants to give us a whole new wardrobe. What keeps me from trading in my old one, and what makes this new one worth putting on every day?
October 31, 2010: " Basking in the Glow" Ephesians 5:3-20. Have we opened up our whole lives to God, letting Jesus shine into our dark places? What's the difference? We'll look at some of the differences between the life of light and the life of darkness, specifically as we relate to sex, speech, and time.
November 7, 2010: "Re-Imagining Relationships" Ephesians 5:21-6:9. Let's be honest: a lot of us have a problem with this "submission" word. How do we deal with passages that trouble or offend us? What is Paul really saying, and how does it challenge us to re-imagine how we do relationships?
November 14, 2010: "Life in a Warzone" Ephesians 6:10-20. Paul begins to close his letter by reminding us that those seeking to shine the light of Jesus will face great opposition. How is this spiritual battle similar to and different from the battles and wars waged all around us? What steps do we need to take so that we can share in Jesus' victory?
November 21, 2010: "God's Eye View" Ephesians 6 :21-24. As we finish our journey through Ephesians, it's our chance to make personal what we've heard Paul saying throughout his letter. How have our visions of God, his story, the Church, and our own life's purpose increased?
