Making the Case for Life

It’s so important that we can articulate well why preserving LIFE is so important.  

As Christians, we know Scripture is clear that God knew us before He formed us in the womb. Many times, though, even among other Christians, that falls on deaf ears. 

Join us and others in the community for an evening with Dr. Marc Newman to learn how You Can Make A Case for LIFE.  Dr. Newman is president of Speaker For Life, a training firm dedicated to equipping people to speak to those they influence about LIFE. 

A light dinner will be served at 5:30PM.

Please RSVP by emailing us at awakenanchorage@gmail.com.

Good Friday Perspectives

For centuries, Christians have held "Good Friday" as a sacred day because is was on this day  that Jesus was crucified, beginning at 9:00am.  He hung on the cross for 6 hours and then gave up his spirit.  This year we are going to look at the week leading up to Jesus' death and the crucifixion itself from 6 different perspectives.  We also will be celebrating communion together on this sacred night.  Please join us for an inspiring evening as we look forward to the resurrection of Jesus as a community.

Childcare will be provided for babies up to 4-yr-olds.
