The Gospel in Waller Hall

•February 4, 2009 • 7 Comments

Hey Guys,

This is Ben Porter. In Romans Paul asks us a disturbing question: “Everyone who calls on the Lord will be saved. (But) How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard.” This rhetorical proposition leaves us with little question regarding who Paul is asking to fulfill this “great commission”. It is us! In the consuming drudgery of our lives we tend to forget that there are sinners who are completely condemned to eternal death and separation from our glorious Father. We must realize our responsibility as “joint heirs with Christ” and live to communicate the Gospel to the world around us. It is in this responsibility that I would love to serve you guys by facilitating a place on campus where the Gospel is being put forth. I will be going through the book of Romans and pulling out key sections of the book which are saturated with the Gospel so we can discuss the glorious work of Jesus. Here you can invite your non Christian friends to hear the Gospel for the first time or you can come by yourself and sharpen your perception of Jesus throughout scripture.

How glorious our God would look if even one person was added to the kingdom this semester. Praise Jesus!

We will be meeting in Waller Hall in rm. 446 on Wednesdays. If you need to get in the building or have questions my phone number is (206) 518 0421 or you can E-mail me at bporter1989@gmail.com

The Alpha Series

or, “Caesar’s with Caesar” (Free Caesar’s Pizza with Pastor Caesar Paul)

A British video presentation of Christianity, addressing the following questions and more:

  • Who is Jesus?
  • Why did Jesus die?
  • Why and how should I pray?
  • What about the Church?

Whether you’re exploring Christianity, or you’re skeptic, or you just want to know its fundamentals better, we invite you to stop by for lunch and a laid-back video presentation. These videos last about 45 minutes–leaving enough time for you to head to class or to stay and chat with Pastor Caesar Paul. Pizza will be provided!

Wednesdays at 12:10, One Way Books & Espresso

One Way is located on campus on the corner of B Street and Colorado Street.

You can drop by any week, even if you haven’t made it to previous sessions. There is no cost or obligation of any kind.

New to Soma?

We are a bunch of crazy college students who are passionate about God and knowing Him better.

“Soma” is Greek for the body — recognizing that God has designed us to be a body (see II Corinthians 12) with Jesus Christ as the head. We strive to connect with people as part of this body.  What does that look like?  Well, we pray together, sing together, read from God’s Word together and talk about it together… and love it.  By God’s grace we experience real friendship and fellowship.  It’s all centered around God’s relationship with us–what Jesus accomplished to save us.

Our main meetings are Tuesday evenings at 7:00 at the Evangelical Free Church.  There are tons of rides available — just send us a note if you need one.  We have a regular Thursday morning prayer hour and men’s and women’s small groups that meet every other week.  The Wednesday @ noon Alpha Series (with pizza!) is great for anyone exploring the foundations of Christianity.   As part of the E. Free church, many of us participate in various E. Free Bible Studies, especially Foundations for Marriage, which is an awesome class that you should take if you’re thinking about ever getting married.

You can explore this site, email us at soma.efree@gmail.com, or call 360-981-5134 for more information.  We would love to see you at Soma!

Case for Christ

The Case for Christ

Based on the best-selling book by the same name, Lee Strobel, a former atheist re-traces his own spiritual journey.

The Project: Determine if there’s credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God. The Reporter: Lee Strobel, educated at Yale Law School, award-winning former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune-with a background of atheism. The Experts: A dozen scholars, with doctorates from Cambridge, Princeton, Brandeis, and other top-flight institutions, who are recognized authorities on Jesus. The Story: Retracing his own spiritual journey, Lee Strobel cross-examines the experts with tough, point-blank questions: How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence exist for Jesus outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual historical event?

This remarkable documentary is like reading a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it’s not fiction. It’s a riveting quest for the truth about history’s most compelling figure. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?

For more information, click on http://www.christiancinema.com. An excellent movie to bring a friend to!

We invite you to join us each Friday to enjoy a free movie and popcorn with a brief, thought-provoking discussion following the movie. Coffee beverages, Italian sodas, fruit smoothies and pop are also available at listed prices.  Next week: Prince Caspian.

With Thanksgiving

•November 27, 2008 • Leave a Comment

“Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”

Psalm 100:3-5

We are his!  The Lord is good and his love endures forever!  Let us bask in his faithfulness and live in thankfulness for all He’s done.

Next Tuesday we’ll go over the first half of Philippians, including this powerful passage–where again the perspective of thanksgiving is central:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6-7
