Always Good News Series

We live in a bad news world filled with relentlessly disturbing headlines: war and crime, poverty and pandemics, racism and oppression, mass murder and disaster. We all experience discouragement, temptation and regret, pain and suffering, failure and disappointment, decline and death.

Though the world is overflowing with bad news, the message of Jesus is bigger and brighter than all of it, giving us hope in the midst of every negative experience in our lives. The Message of Jesus is ALWAYS good news!

What is Always Good News?

The Sermon Series: Always Good News is being preached in an effort to share the Gospel far and wide. It can be intimidating to share the good news of Jesus with the people in your life; one simple way to do this is to invite neighbors, friends, and family to join you for the sermon series, April 16 - May 28 (series begins April 23 at Northfield).

LIFE Groups: Discuss the sermons with a LIFE Group. If you’ve never tried a LIFE Group, this is a great time to check one out! Contact us to get connected.

Read Always Good News: Why the Message of Jesus is Good Every Day by Scott Lothery, written to help make the Gospel clear. Copies will be available in April for everyone who attends The Orchard. We hope the book will serve as encouragement to your soul and a tool for you to share the good news.
