Connection Point Newsletter
March 17, 2023
Greetings from Pastor John
This week we will be in Romans 6. It looks at our options for power and life. We can continue to look for our own sin for meaning or to look to Christ for power and life.
We also have a Connection Sunday after service. If you can, plan on sticking around afterwards!
See you Sunday!

Family Discussion Starters
•How did Elisha’s miracles show that God is the one true God? How can God use you to share His truth with others?
•How do Jesus’ miracles help us to trust God in every circumstance?
Because we have come to know Jesus as the Word of God and have been forgiven and transformed by Him, we declare God’s Word to those around us with faith and boldness so that God may move others from death to life.
• HEAD: How should faith in Jesus, the powerful Son of God, affect the way you think, speak, and act this week?
• HEART: How have you experienced the comfort of God’s power in hard times? Praise Him for His love and care for you.
• HANDS: What are some ways you will care for people’s physical needs this week? For their spiritual needs, namely, to know Jesus and believe in Him?
