Galatians Study This Fall at Lifeprint Church

Starting Sunday  October 4 at 6:30,  I will be starting a study on Galatians in my home entitled, “Living in line with the Truth of the Gospel”. The study and questions were done by Tim Keller.  This course will run for 13 weeks.   The study will be equally good for mature believers or those that are new to their faith.  The study basically describes how the Gospel message (“the good news”)  of Jesus Christ works and provides the power for us living out our lives in our faith, relationships, marriages, and in all aspects of our lives:

Below  is an outline on the study. For those that are in the south-west suburbs area of the twin cities and at Lifeprint Church, I welcome you to join me if you want be e-mailing me at jaspadino@gmail.com.  There is limited space since it is in my home.

Being positioned in Christ

Over the years I have tended to prefer Pastors and Churches that find a way to sneak or relate Christ and the Gospel message into every sermon. By doing this, I believe, they are fighting against many of the temptations and traps that many people can fall into. As I think about this I wanted to bring back a list of items that highlights the Gospel centrality mindset in comparison to Religious mentality mindset. The base document was started by Tim Keller and I added several items that were thoughts of mine as I thought this over.
