Every year, as a gift, SFC’s Spiritual Life Committee will distribute one book to each family represented at SFC including parents, faculty and staff. The goal of this program is to provide a way for each person to grow in their faith and together as a community. This year, the committee selected 2010’s Christian Book of the Year, The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns. The Hole in Our Gospel challenges believers with the question “what does God expect of us?” This fresh look at the gospel will lead you toward a deeper understanding of your own faith and inspire you to actively demonstrate God’s love for a hurting world.
“The idea of the One Book One SFC program is that we all focus on the same faith-based message for a time being and encourage each other in that message” expressed board member, Sharon Divjak. “We envision people talking to each other about the content of the book while they’re watching their kids play sports or while working on some school related project (musical, auction, etc.), even while hanging out at the bus stop. Ultimately, we hope members of the SFC family will encourage each other to grow in faith as we serve our loving God together; as we reach out to each other and to those most in need in our own community and those beyond our borders.”
