Despite our desire to sin, people want to do good. Most religions promote this as the way to salvation. When we keep the rules that are set before us, we feel good about ourselves. Burt none of us can perfectly keep a set of rules, much less God’s perfect law. Fortunately, Christ lived the perfect life and stood in as a substitute for us. Through His death, we are forgiven and able to have a relationship with God. Jesus offers you His Gift of right relationship with God.
This season, discuss with your child when you began to follow Christ. A great quote to discuss, “Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.” – Jerry Bridges

The Bible says that through Jesus Christ, we are fused together as a body of believers. We must be in Christ to be fused together with other believers. Our main goal in Fusion is for students to come to a saving relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Next, it is our goal to help students live for God and to be transformed and conformed to the image of Christ. By conforming to Christ, students will discover God’s unique plan and will for their lives so that they can live out God’s purpose that He has for each of them, while at the same time, they are being “fused” together by His Son.
So in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.– Romans 12:5
We do offer "Sunday School" classes which we call Connection Groups. These groups all meet before the Sunday morning services at either 8:00 am or 9:30 am. We've found that joining a Connection Group really helps one to grow, so find a Connection Group that fits you and come participate.
