This winter in Home Groups we will be reading and discussing The Jesus I Never Knew by Philip Yancey. In describing Yancey, Billy Graham wrote that “there is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more.” In this book, Yancey took a “second look” at the person of Jesus, and discovered the living Savior anew.
Yancey writes: “How does the Jesus of the New Testament compare to the ‘new, rediscovered’ Jesus—or even the Jesus we think we know so well? Thousands of books have been written about Jesus, and yet still he remains an elusive historical figure. For several years I taught a class on Jesus that relied on movie depictions of his life. Out of that class came this book, for teaching it gave me a new and different perspective on his work—his teachings, his miracles, his death and resurrection—and ultimately, who he was and why he came. In this book I emphasize the relational and personal rather than the scholarly. Who was this man Jesus? What was he like? No one who meets Jesus ever stays the same.”Register for The Jesus I Never Knew Home Group!

Thanks to a very generous gift to the Home Groups Ministry of Roseville Lutheran Church, ALL copies of this Winter Home Group book have been paid for! There will be NO COST TO YOU to participate in this Winter’s Home Group. We really want you to join us!
Winter Home Groups begin the week of January 26th and run for 5 weeks.
As we delve further into year 3 of our “Connect, Grow, Serve, Go” ministry plan in which we focus on “Serve,” it’s worth remembering that even though we have a specific focus, we don’t stop Connecting or Growing—in fact, without connections or growth, we actually aren’t able to serve as effectively. The books and topics we’ll be studying together for Home Groups this year help to provide that necessary foundation as we serve God and our neighbors.
