Union with Christ

Redeemer Family,

Over the next five Sundays, we will be finishing our series on Colossians by looking at how we live out our union with Christ in the everyday stuff of life. My hope and prayer are that this last five weeks would really help us take the beauty and truth of our union with Christ and equip us to live this out together. Essentially what we are going to consider how what we looked at in Colossians 3:5-17 plays out in the various spheres of our life. We will be looking at each topic and going back to the first three chapters to help us connect the dots.

We are also going to try a few things for these last five weeks to help us apply what we are learning. For each of these sermons, we will have an opportunity for you to submit questions (comment or email [email protected]) about each topic that our teaching team will address. We also plan on having some team teaching during these five weeks where we get some perspectives from women and also hear from different people in our church as they seek to live out their identity in Christ. Lastly, we will have follow up resources each week that will give you clear next steps to get help in any of the topics you find yourself needing further support with.

Would you commit to praying for these last five weeks? Pray specifically that the Holy Spirit would use it to bring new life in each of these areas to those who are hurting, struggling, and in need of grace. Know that your Elders are praying for you and want to know how we can best serve you!
