Sunday, June 23rd: Made to Be in God’s Family

Ephesians 1:5; 1 Peter 2:17

  Family reunions can be great fun. It’s a time when we  reconnect and share the stories of our lives with the members of our human family.

  God has a family too. When you choose believe in Jesus as God’s Son and become His disciple; when you choose to belong to God’s family then you become part of God’s family. That means you gain another family in addition to your human family. You gain a spiritual family. And that family is a BIG family! It includes all the people across the world who chose to belong to God’s family. But it gets better! You also discover that you now belong to a smaller family within the BIG family. We call that family “church.”

   The church is more than a building where disciples of Jesus come together to worship God. It is a family. And Jesus said we are to love our spiritual family.

   A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. (John 13:34-35)

  Jesus says we are to love those in our spiritual family. But what exactly does that look like? How are we to love those in our spiritual family?

  Join us Sunday as we find out the answer to that question. Come and join us as we learn how God wants us to love those in our spiritual family. It just might surprise you.

   Come and join us–it’s going to be good!

Kid J.A.M. (Jesus And Me)

   Come and join Kid J.A.M. as they continue their new series, “Vroom 500.” The Vroom 500 is home to the most prestigious race of the year, and teams come from all around to compete.

  This season, we’re following Screech as he returns as Team Goodlove’s seasoned Pit Crew Chief, with big dreams of being a real race car driver himself one day. Professional racer Vic is new to the team, but not new to winning. Screech and Vic have to work together to prepare vehicles and cross the finish line. If they win all of their races, they’ll make it to the final round of the Vroom 500 and Vic will win a $10 million prize! But, in order to do that, Screech will have to help Vic understand that while winning is fun, love is what makes the Goodlove’s Racing Team successful on and off the track!

    Come and join Kid J.A.M. It’s going to be good!

 
 
 
 

Every Sunday at 8:45 a.m. come and gather for prayer in the sanctuary with us.

“Christian: It’s NOT What You Think!” by Andy Stanley.

  Did you know that the word “Christian” is only found 3 times in the Bible? In fact, people that believed in Jesus in Bible times didn’t call themselves Christian. They used another term to identify themselves with Jesus. The definition of this term is used throughout the New Testament and as Andy says, “it is terrifying.”

   Why? Come and join us Sundays at 9 a.m. as we find out the answer to this question together.

 

 

Every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. : Come and join us for coffee and donuts prior to our worship at 10:45 a.m.
