We’re launching a new three part UCC growth class!

UCC Growth Class 3: The Mission of God’s People.

Dates: May 13, 20, and 27 @ UCC office, Leppävaara, Tulkinkuja 3 (6th floor)

Description: The course focuses on the biblical theology of the church’s mission, based on Christopher J.H. Wright’s book: The Mission of God’s People. The three-time course answers the question: What does the Bible as a whole in both testaments have to tell us about why the people of God exist and what it is they are supposed to be and do in the world? As disciples of Jesus we have to have a clear understanding of our mission in life. This course is therefore a must for all of us who want to understand our place in world missions.

Please, sign up for the course by sending an e-mail to: dirk-jan@ucclife.fi
