Last week, we began this new series called, “Reclaimed,” where we look at the life of this guy named Paul who wrote so much of our Bible. We saw that he was headed in the wrong direction with his life, and God miraculously stepped in to Paul’s life, rescued and Reclaimed him! So now what? After having been “Reclaimed”, where do you go from there? What does it look like for Paul to live this life of being Reclaimed, and what does it look like for you to live a Reclaimed life?
It’s so easy for us to focus on a moment in time of someone’s life and let that be the definition of who they are. When we do that with the Apostle Paul, we see this “over-the-top, way better than I am” person who changed the world. But what we miss is his story. Paul’s story wrapped up with him having changed the world; yours could too. Paul wasn’t perfect. He was Reclaimed by God, and so are you.
This Sunday is going to be such a fun but different Sunday. Be ready for that! As I told you last week we are doing things different because we want to take our understanding of what Communion is to a deeper level. We take communion on a monthly basis, but this Sunday is all about why we do it and where it came from. My hope is that you will walk away feeling even more overwhelmed by God’s plan and His love for you than ever before!
This Sunday, we wrap up our series, “If This Then That,” with the most important message. I’ll talk about the “secret sauce” to finding a life that will make you smile. You can do everything else we talked about in this series, and if you don’t have this, you’ll miss it all.
Last Sunday, we started a new series called “If This Then That”. We want to help you have THIS: a life that will make you smile. But to get THIS, you’re going to need to do some THAT’s. This Sunday, we really want to help you understand how God designed the church to help you have a life that will make you smile. How does that work?
Sunday, we start up a brand new series called, “If This, Then That,” which will help us set the tone for the new year. We all want to be the best version of ourselves possible, but some things are required for that to happen. If you want to become everything God created you to be this year and for the rest of your life, you need to figure out these foundational steps.
We are going to cap off our series “Virgin Territory” with a rare glimpse of Mary parenting Jesus during his childhood. While there is little written about Jesus’ adolescence, we know that Mary continued to parent her son as he grew. In Luke 2:41-52, we encounter a story where Mary’s expectations do not align with her reality. Like Mary, we often experience unmet expectations, and we will unpack together how we can face disappointment by leaning into God.
We continue our series “Virgin Territory” where we are looking at Jesus’ birth from Mary’s perspective. After Mary comes to grips with what is really happening in her life, she stops and writes a song with such insights that we just can’t wait to share it with you.
