MESSAGE - "Framing Your Worldview: Where Did We Come From?" The theory of evolution has led much of the world to believe that the existence of life on this planet, including human life, is entirely accidental. The Judeo-Christian understanding of the origins of the world and of life in it is that all life is specially and intentionally created by a loving God, therefore giving each human life great value and purpose. This idea is being increasingly confirmed also through new scientific discoveries that overwhelmingly confirm the likelihood of an intelligent designer of life and the universe itself.
SMALL GROUP STUDY "WIDE ANGLE - FRAMING YOUR WORLD VIEW" You can still get connected! Every fall, you are invited and encouraged to attend a small group for relational encouragement, discussion and prayer. To look for a small group go to hopeseattle.org and click on "small groups". A study guide can be purchased in the church office, Monday - Thursday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
