This Week’s Need to Know – 01/25/2018

Sola Fide, or Faith Alone, was at the heart of the Protestant Reformation.  No longer would man need to cower before the supposed almighty church hoping that the good of his life would tip the scale in his favor and make heaven his home.  Man is justified by faith, and by faith alone.  Our faith rests in the finished work of Christ.  We have received His righteousness and have been made joint-heirs with Him.  Our lives become vessels through which God will work our His purposes on earth, not so that we can merit anything, but that He alone may be glorified.  Join us this Sunday morning as Pastor Tim continues our journey through the 5 Solas.

Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times. – Martin Luther

Home Groups: Grow. Together.
The Christian life is designed to be lived in a relational community, and the best way to build these relationships at Big Woods is to be involved in a home group.  It’s not to late to get involved.  We have a space for you to join us as we grow closer in our relationships with others, and with our Savior.  Contact Pastor Aaron today for more information on how you can get involved.

Wendy’s Night!
Help our New Life Campus Ministry students as they prepare to minister later this year in Puerto Rico.  The people of Puerto Rico are still recovering from the devastation brought by Hurricane Maria in 2017.  Our students will be partnering with the North American Mission Board to help with recovery efforts.  Wendy’s in Lock Haven will be donating 10% of their proceeds on Monday, February 5, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.  Stop by and give the cook the night off, and help out this great cause.
