Study on Galatians

Hi everyone! Apologies for an absence in updates; maybe that would be a good New Years resolution! As a brief update on the Shift; we've had amazing attendance and community surrounding the Shift for the past several months! So exciting to see young people coming together to learn about Christ and seek Christian fellowship with one another. New people are finding there way to the Shift weekly, and we are so stoked for what's ahead!

We are starting this new year with a study on Galatians! We are so excited to see God move through this series! Last week's discussion centered around chapter one, with the main theme being deception. The Galatians had fallen away from the truth, and were being deceived and distracted from the gospel that Paul had previously brought to them. Looking into the Galatians situation, we sought out the best ways to recognize and deal with deception in our lives. Great discussion followed!

Galatians 1:6-9

"6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed."

Join us, as we look into Paul's letter to Galatia over the next several weeks. I am so stoked for what God has in store for us through this series!

Also: MESS (Meet Eat Spirit Seek) will be next Friday, the 27Th, at Sean and Dani Brink's house. 7PM, dinner, worship and Jesus

And, FLE (Financial Learning Experience) featuring Joe Sangl, Monday Jan 23rd at Element Church. This event is free and awesome. We will be going because its awesome, and invite you to as well.

God Bless! ~Sam
