“Then Jesus told them plainly, ‘Lazarus has died, and for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe.’” 
John 11:14-15

Dear Via Family,

Lent is a season in which we see glimpses of the glory and power of Jesus that shape our views of this broken world. Repentance leads to renewal - and only Jesus has the power to bring life to our dead spirits and the things in our lives that are broken. God has been challenging me and changing me during this season and I pray that He is doing the same with you.

I am so grateful for our church family where we get to live on mission together. Here are a few things coming up...


This Weekend - A Foretaste of Easter

The Story is a course that will walk through the Gospel Story.  This 4-week course is for people new to their faith journey and for those wishing to grow in their understanding of the Gospel. It starts on Sunday, April 23 at 10:45am in room 4101.
