2009 so far!


I'm so stoked about what God is doing! I like to pause and reflect about the past because it helps me prepare for the future. This year has been absolutely incredible so far! Our theme for 2009 is based on a book by Mark Batterson called, “In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day.” It is an odd title for a book and it comes from an obscure passage found in 2 Samuel 23:20 that says, “Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it.” Our theme for the year is, “Chase The Lion!” The question is, “What will you and I do when opportunity roars?” This year is all about seizing every divine moment. We kicked off this year with a 21 day fast & God has answered so many prayers! Here are some highlights so far...

1. We have seen 43 people make decisions to follow Jesus so far this year!
2. We have had our highest attended services ever with an average of over 500 people!
3. We have seen a dramatic increase in small group involvement & serving!

God is moving and doing awesome things in the life of our church! I wish I could share more of the stories & testimonies of what God is doing. So blessed! I'm so thankful for the unity and vision that God has given our church. In a few weeks, I am asking our church to once again join me in a fast. (April 5-April 12) Together we are asking God to do some incredible things in the lives of our church family and in the life of our community!

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are those who are merciful to others... Happy are those who work for peace.” Matthew 5:7,9 (TEV)

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.
“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” C.S. Lewis

“But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.” Mark 11:25 (NLT)

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
#1- Hoarders always need MORE.
