HOPE FOR LOS ANGELES
Hope for Morality

Mark 12:28-34
Only Christ offers to die for your unrighteousness so that He can make you righteous.
How do we know what is right or wrong, good or evil? Who has the right to say? God in His perfect goodness and authority speaks to a world so often confused about good and evil.

Application Questions

  1. How does authority relate to morality?
  2. How does truth relate to morality?
  3. Why is the "I choose" approach to morality empty?
  4. How does the "we choose" approach to morality fall short?
  5. Why is it better for us if "He chooses" our morality?

Wisdom for West LA: Singleness & Dating
Saturday, May 18th, 8:30am-4:30pm

Few things in our city are as complicated, significant, and sensitive as singleness and dating. But Christianity provides a rich vision for singleness and supplies the resources necessary to experience it ourselves. It also provides clarity and wisdom for dating that apply even in the brave new world of 2024. This full-day conference, designed for our whole church family, will explore all of the above and leave us better equipped to live wisely in West LA. Registration is now open, and childcare is available.

Spring Book Discussion: Surprised by Doubt
Sunday, May 19th, 1-2:30pm, Welcome Center

Even those who live by faith sometimes doubt. Those doubts don’t have to mean the end of Christian identity. In this thought-provoking book, Joshua D. Chatraw and Jack Carson help readers rediscover a deeper faith in the midst of a confusing world. They invite skeptics and doubters to explore the ancient faith for a new perspective on contemporary Christianity. Join us as we read and then meet to discuss it!
