We celebrate the coming of the Spirit to encourage the church to to live the good news of Jesus Christ outwardly and invitationally.
God has prepared a chair for you. Will you sit down with him or someone else?
Our God is a God of second chances.
Sometimes life can leave us feeling like a mess. The kind of mess that’s just too complicated to figure out. But it’s possible to start fresh. To experience life in a new way. When you have been transformed by God's love, you can't help but want others to experience the same. Life is unpredictable. But you were made to persevere, no matter the highs and lows.
We all have a calling to serve God by pursuing the mission we have been given.
Series thought: If people of all ages can partner together, we can lay a strong foundation for the future church. A church that may look different from today but will be worth celebrating as we acknowledge that God is on the move through every generation. Book Reference: Ready for More: How Millennials are Destined to Change the Church by Sara Blakeney If you’re ready to see God work in your life, praying safe won’t cut it. It’s time to pray boldly. To pray daringly. To pray with fire.
Thankfulness, appreciation, and gratitude are spiritual aspects of being that build joy. A spirituality of gratitude changes our lives and the lives of others, so make gratitude a part of daily life.
