Catalyst: Thursday Night Worship Service

If you love me… Jesus told his disciples that if they loved him then they would follow his commands. Simple, but theologically complicated. This semester we will be unpacking this idea as we work through the book of 1 John, where we see John explain this idea in many different ways. John even gives us some evaluation tools to know if we are doing okay or not. Then we will jump into the most easily practiced book in the entire Bible, the book of James, and we can learn some really practical ways to love Jesus by doing what he tells us to do in his word.
