“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.”
Matthew 4: 1-11

Dear Via Family,

God is at work building His Kingdom and using His Church to do it! At any given time in the history of the Church, there have been challenges and opportunities. It is up to each generation to seek the leading of the Holy Spirit to determine what God is doing and be a part of it. This week I have had the privilege of hearing ministry reports from around the world - His Church is very much alive and active! At Via, we play a small, but critically important part of God’s work in our city and our world. I call you to pray for God’s work, in our church, city, and world!

These items will help to keep you in the loop...

 

This Weekend - Lent

We will pause our Exodus series for a few weeks to focus on Lent - a season of repentance and renewal. In preparation for these weeks, please consider purchasing one of the resources available from The Bookshelf in the Cafe. Allow this annual Christian rhythm to engage your life in the power of the Gospel. I am praying for God to do some profound work among us over the next few weeks.  For more information, please click below for resources, the sermon series ahead and more.

Our annual rummage sale is this weekend, March 3, 7:00am - 4:00pm and March 4, 7:00am - 12:00pm. This is a great community event as we reflect the hope of Christ.  The proceeds of this event go to help spread the Gospel across our city and the world!  Stop on over and enjoy some fellowship along with some bargain hunting!
