MObile Faith: “Making Sense of the Cross” with Pastor Lose

We see the cross every week in church. It is a familiar reminder of the foundation of our faith. The cross can also be fearsome, difficult to comprehend, or threatening. Its importance can be muted by our theories and theologies. We invite you to revisit what the cross means to your faith with a special MObile Faith online learning opportunity led by none other than our Senior Pastor-Elect David Lose. In a three-part series Pastor Lose explains how the cross is “the pinnacle of God’s story of creation, love, forgiveness, and grace.” Explore one, two, or all three of the courses at your convenience. They will serve as a powerful reminder that God knows us, loves us just as we are, and is unwilling to lose us. $10 for new MObile Faith users. No additional cost for current MObile Faith subscribers.

MObile Faith: Making Sense of the Cross – In-Person Discussion Mpls Su 3/19 7-8:30pm Lounge. After exploring part or all of the online series, come and connect with other Mount Olivet members and friends for a live, in-person discussion of “Making Sense of the Cross” facilitated by Liz Otteson. No cost for the discussion.
