Becoming A Missional Church: A Seminar with Dr. John Barton This Weekend

March 12, 2008

 God's people are called to be salt and light in a dark and broken world.  Sending missionaries addresses part of this call, but we are called to be missionaries right here at home, too. 

We need to be a people of “mission,” thus the concept of being missional.  What this means is being a people who have a heart for those around us and making God's Name known in our community.

Missional thinking calls for new ways of imagining and incorporating outreach and service to our world. 

This seminar with Dr. John Barton will explore these concepts.  Sessions are scheduled for 5:00 PM and 6:30 PM on Saturday night, and 9:30 AM and 10:30 AM on Sunday morning.

Everyone is invited.

Part Of God's Family

March 5, 2008

 This Sunday, several of our members will share how their families have influenced their lives, and how God works through each of us to build His Kingdom.

Many times, we take our brothers and sisters, moms and dads, for granted, but the scriptures are full of examples of how our families are part of His family.

Join us Sunday and share your testmony.

Pet Peeves: Yours, Mine & God's

February 27, 2008

 The Today Show last month had a segment on personal “pet peeves.” They invited viewers to call in and email in habits that drove them crazy. I took the time to review the responses and wondered what our personal pet peeves would include.

Several weeks ago I sent out a mass email asking just that, and your response was overwhelming. This Sunday we will take a look at these in a message, Pet Peeves: Yours, Mine, & God's.

Our Father can be pushed close to the edge, too, and it would behoove us to know what His buttons are. It's a fun message that includes a very serious look at things that do more than irritate people.
