Yearly Theme | 2018
"The Grace of God Has Appeared to All"
Theme Verses: Titus 2.11-14
"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works."
Purpose of Theme:
The purpose of our theme for this year is to understand God's role in our lives through grace, and to understand how that grace prompts us to growth and to action. God's grace is more than just underserved goodness; it is a demonstration of how we ought to live. We are created in the image of a God who is loving, giving, caring and gracious, and his example shows us what true life looks like. Titus 2 provides us with a template for growing in our relationship with God and understanding our ultimate purpose in life: to become a people for God's own possession who are zealous for good works.
