Spring 2024 Book Study - April 10th-May 8th

"On Purpose: Finding God's Voice in Your Passion"

Be part of something more. We are hungry for a sense of purpose, direction, and calling in our lives. That’s as basic an ingredient to the human experience as they come. we want to be part of something bigger than ourselves. we want to participate in something that has external merit and lasting impact. We do not want to live in a shallow, hollow existence. We yearn for deeper meaning, for deeper purpose within our lives. we want to be more than we are.

In On Purpose: finding God’s Voice in Your Passion, authors Magrey de Vega, Sam McGlothlin, Jevon Caldwell-Gross, and Susan Robb help us see God’s purpose for our lives, how to open ourselves to God’s voice, and how to take the first or next step to follow God’s call. Reading this book and exploring life choices alongside others, individuals will learn ow to channel their passions, hear God’s voice, and live the life they were meant to live.
