“I Can Only Imagine” Bible School Class:  Lead by Tony Brandt.

 

In the film, I Can Only Imagine, the life story of MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard is told for the first time.    It is the story of grace, acceptance, forgiveness and redemption.   Using clips from the movie and by walking with Jesus through the four gospels, we will take a journey into the Father’s heart and discover the smiling face of God.   Topics include:  Imagine a loving Father.  Imagine complete forgiveness.  Imagine restoration to God and others.  Imagine discovering your true home in the Lord.  A devotional journal and study guide is available for this class.   (See Tony for details.)  Be sure to plan to watch the movie on Sunday, July 15!
