What On Earth Am I Here For?

All Church Study

September 17th through October 29th

The biggest question in life has been asked in many ways:  Why am I here?  What is the meaning of life?  What is my purpose?  What’s it all about?  This fall we will deal with the big question at Wayne Street Church.  We will undertake a six week study of scriptures relating to the big question, using Rick Warren’s program, “What On Earth Am I Here For?”

The program features weekly DVD video teachings from Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in California, which we will study in small discussion groups.  In addition, I will bring a corresponding message each Sunday about God’s purpose for our lives.  Warren’s book, study guides, and online helps will also be available.  We strongly encourage everyone to be a part of one of these small groups, which will meet once per week for just six weeks.  If it is not possible for you to be part of a group you can still participate by attending worship, reading the book, and/or reading online.

Those who make use of all the available resources (small group experience, the book, online helps, and the Sunday morning teachings) will enjoy the fullest and richest experience.

It has been my experience that an all church study can be of tremendous benefit to a church.  It can bring a great sense of unity.  Imagine the entire church focused on the same topics, digging together into the same scriptures, discovering together the meaning of our calling and what purpose God has for each of us, and for our church.  You can join the study at any point, each session can stand alone.  I hope you will be a part of it.
