The Christian Life - Lived Out in Captivity

Next Online Group - Sunday Feb. 25th - The Life of the Christian in Captivity.  Many people have Jeremiah 29:11 as a life verse that gives us hope when times are hard.  But have you ever read the passages leading up to that promise?  It is connected to the Babylonian Captivity and one of the lessons we learned is that Captivity has a purpose

In our next session we will consider Jeremiah 29:7 "Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” and we will discuss some ways we can apply this wisdom to our everyday lives as students, professionals, friendships and families. 

This will be a practical and helpful consideration of how we can respond to this passage in our lives today.  Then our next session on March 17th we will see how this played out in the life of Daniel.  Won't you join us?


We have people from different states join us all the time so we hope that will consider being part of the Awake and Alive community. Our upcoming schedule for the online Awake and Alive groups looks like this:

Sunday February 25th - 7:30pm Central Time Zone
Sunday March 17th - 7:30pm Central Time Zone
Sunday April 7th - 7:30pm Central Time Zone
